Another New Lenox resident has fallen prey to an identity thief looking to go on unemployment.
On Saturday, a New Lenox police officer was "dispatched to the 900 block of Haven reference a report of identity theft," police said. "The complainant advised that an unknown person attempted to use her personal information to obtain unemployment benefits."
Just eight days before, the police were alerted to an identical identity scam.
The crimes were forwarded to the police department's investigations division for review.
