Illinois woman charged 3 years after discovery of more than 200 identity theft attempts


(ABC 6 News) – An Illinois woman was charged with identity theft and receiving stolen property almost three years after Rochester police found identifying documents for more than 200 people and businesses in her hotel room.

According to court records, Rochester police assigned an investigator to look into Cassie Mae Cullen, now 50, in March of 2020 after Cullen was allegedly arrested with multiple fraudulent checks and credit cards on her.

According to court documents, Cullen told police in 2020 that she was dumpster diving to find papers with people’s financial and personal information on them, which she used to apply for credit and debit cards.
