EMA Director Charged with Identity Theft

MONTROSE, Pa. — State police have charged the former director of the Susquehanna Emergency Management Agency with identity theft.

Troopers say Robert Thatcher, 32, of Hallstead, used a former employee’s personal information to open credit card accounts.

Thatcher is also accused of making an online purchase with one of those fraudulent cards.

Thatcher was charged with identity theft, access device fraud, and receiving stolen property.

County officials said Thatcher had been recently terminated for issues unrelated to his alleged criminal conduct.  A county investigation indicates that this was an isolated incident and that no information, other than that associated with the current victim, was accessed, utilized or obtained by Thatcher.
