Woman arrested in PH implicated in ID fraud scheme


Published:

Nine months after she was found in a Palm Harbor motel room with the personal identification information of some two dozen people, a Fort Lauderdale woman has been implicated in a statewide scheme where such information was bartered for cash, according to court records.

Kameca Miller, 20, was arrested earlier this month on a 28-count information charging her with scheme to defraud, six counts of grand theft, and 21 counts of the unauthorized possession of a driver’s license or identification card.

On Aug. 15, several agents from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement went to Miller’s room at the Red Roof Inn, 32000 U.S. 19 N., Palm Harbor, according to court documents. Inside her purse they found credit cards, debit cards and checks belonging to 24 people, the documents state.

Also found were 21 of the victims’ driver’s licenses, and five of their Social Security numbers, the court documents say.

All were reported stolen during various car burglaries throughout the state.

The documents indicate a man in the room with Miller had been implicated in a scheme where he would allow other people to use the credit cards in exchange for cash, the documents state. His name is not being published because it does not appear he has been brought to Pinellas County to face any charges.
