ST. LOUIS (AP) -- An Illinois woman faces sentencing in February after admitting to stealing her mother's identity to obtain loans and make purchases, and stealing valuable glass figurines from a suburban St. Louis store.
The guilty plea to federal charges of interstate transportation of stolen property and identity theft by 39-year-old Susan Feaman of Ellis Grove, Ill., was announced Thursday by acting U.S. Attorney Michael Reap.
Reap says Feaman used her mother's name, Social Security number and credit to fraudulently obtain a $145,000 loan, and to make $271,000 in credit purchases.
In April, Feaman stole a series of Steuben Crystal glass figurines from the Sallie Home store in Ladue, Mo. The figurines were valued at $15,120.
