Heryford was arrested in September 2014 in this case, but it was not her first arrest for being in possession of stolen identity information. Online records indicate she had been arrested in April 2013 while in possession of less than 5 people’s identity information, and again in January 2014 on the same charge. This time, she was found in possession of more than 50 people’s information.
