SHAWNEE, Oklahoma –
Shawnee police arrested a hotel employee who is accused of stealing customers’ personal information and selling it to a metro man with the intent of causing financial loss.
Lindsay Haley, 38, was charged Friday in Pottawatomie County District Court with 29 counts of identity fraud.
Shawnee police said a manager at the Fairfield Inn Hotel, 14012 Transportation Way, called police when she noticed documents with customers’ personal information on them were missing from a file cabinet.
“She went back on the camera to see what had happened and she realized this lady by the name of Lindsey Haley ended up putting the log in her purse and leaving with it,” said Corporal Vivian Lozano of the Shawnee Police Department.
While detained the same morning, investigators said Haley admitted to stealing the documents with the intention of selling them to an Oklahoma City man.
During a search of her apartment, investigators found documents with personal information from five different businesses that Haley is accused of taking.
In all, investigators were able to identify 29 victims.
Haley has a long multi-county criminal history including multiple forgery convictions, writing bogus checks and drug possession.
Shawnee police is urging the public to keep an eye on finances at all times.
“Keep checking your bank statement and your credit card statement,” said Lozano. “If you notice anything suspicious, call your bank, call the credit card company and ask questions, especially if it doesn’t add up.”
It is unclear if Haley is still employed with the Fairfield Inn.
