Carmel woman charged with falsely reporting identity theft

DOVER PLAINS – A Carmel woman is charged with offering a false instrument for filing after she filed a report that she had been the victim of identity theft, State Police at Dover Plans said.

The arrest stems from an initial identity theft report Virginia Wittenberg filed with troopers in July. An investigation of her case determined the reported claim was false.

Wittenberg was issued an appearance ticket returnable to local court.
