(Follow-up) Kaiser employee ID theft suspect pleads no contest

C. Johnson reports:

A benefits clerk, who was busted while about to undergo liposuction surgery using fraudulently-obtained credit card information from one of her victims, has pleaded no contest to identity theft.

The Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office says Mia Garza, 31, was accused of stealing personal identification information from more than 400 Kaiser Permanente employees to access their credit accounts.

Garza was working as a clerk, after being hired by a labor union, with United Health Workers/SEIU in Oakland when she first illegally accessed the names, addresses and personal identifying information for more than 29,000 Kaiser employees in July 2007, according to prosecutors.
