Police: Woman used victim’s identity for cable services

FREDONIA, N.Y. (WIVB) – A woman discovered her identity had been stolen when she tried to have cable turned on in her new apartment.

The victim had been living in California but recently moved back to Fredonia. When she contacted the cable company, she was told she owed $600.

State Police investigated and arrested 35-year-old Amy Hudson of Collins on Thursday. Troopers say Hudson had known the victim and used her name to secure cable services.

Hudson is charged with second degree identity theft. She is due back in court later this month.
