• Tuesday afternoon, officers took a walk-in report at the LaGrange Police Department in reference to identity theft.

Officers met with the complainant, who stated that his step-mother had filed his taxes earlier this year, as she is licensed to do so.

The complainant stated he has yet to receive his tax return, so he asked his father to check to see why he has yet to receive the funds. His father later informed his that his step-mother received information from the IRS indicating that someone had claimed him on their taxes as a dependent.

The victim advised that he has not given anyone permission to claim him and since he is an adult, he did not think it was possible for someone to claim him.

Officers advised the victim to report the information to the social security administration office since his social security number has been compromised and to check his credit report to see if there are any discrepancies.
