Matt Elofson has an update on a breach originally reported in July 2011:

Federal agents recently arrested a Troy woman on felony charges for allegedly stealing the identities of 800 people while working at an area hospital as part of a government tax fraud scheme.

According to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the federal government recently returned a 22-count felony indictment against 41-year-old Angeline Austin involving a conspiracy to defraud the government and identity fraud.

The indictments included allegations Austin conspired with other people to defraud the U.S. government while she worked with Southern Records Management Inc. at Troy Hospital, which is more commonly known as Troy Regional Medical Center.
