Ex-Wife Charged With Identity Theft

A Four Oaks woman has been charged with stealing the identity of her ex-husband.

Following a 6 month investigation, the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office arrested Tracey Lynette Parrish of the 2600 block of Elevation Road on 7 felony counts of identity theft.

The victim reported earlier this year he checked his credit report and discovered where someone had used his personal information to open several credit card accounts in his name without his knowledge or permission.

During the investigation, detectives learned the victim’s ex-wife allegedly opened the accounts.

Parrish was given a $50,000 bond on the charges following her Oct. 5th arrest.
