Former SDSU employee charged with identity theft

Posted: Updated:

A former South Dakota State University employee faces five felony charges, after police say she used a co-worker's identity to steal more than 35-thousand dollars.

Kari Fuks was arrested earlier this month.

Court documents show the 38-year-old obtained the social security number of a secretary she worked with in the chemistry department.

She used that information to open three credit cards.

The victim learned of the theft, after running a credit report.

Fuks husband, Matt, served as the University's Alumni Association President but is no longer with the organization.

The Alumni Association is not commenting on the case.
