Former state of Minnesota worker stole IDs of 269 public employees, charges say

Emily Gurnon reports that investigators have found the names and SSN of 269 public employees in the home of a former employee of the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry.

Roxanne Kay Deflorin “may have been a source of some of the stolen identities” used by three other women charged in the case, the complaint said.

Deflorin, 49, of St. Paul, was charged Wednesday with identity theft and two counts of possession of a short-barreled shotgun. The guns were found in her condemned Thomas Avenue home along with the stolen identities, according to the complaint.

Deflorin worked for the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry in an administrative position between 1994 and 2004, when she resigned voluntarily, a department spokesman said.
