GONZALES — Gonzales police are looking for a woman who is accused of using an acquaintance’s personal information to withdraw more than $9,500 from the victim’s retirement account, said Sgt. Steven Nethken, a detective with the Police Department.
Denise Scott Gordon, 43, and her husband once lived with the victim. Gordon’s husband also once worked with the victim, Nethken said in a news release.
Detectives with the Gonzales Police Department determined that twice in 2013 and once in 2014 Gordon used the victim’s Social Security number and birth date to get the forms necessary to withdraw $9,570 from the retirement account and have the money mailed to Gordon’s post office box, said.
Gordon, who has unrelated arrest warrants from the Police Department for identity theft and is also being sought by the state’s Probation and Parole Office on a previous felony theft charge, is now being sought by the Gonzales Police Department for felony theft, forgery and identity theft, the news release said.
