Guatemalan steals her Belizean friend’s identity

The following story involves identity theft. A Santa Elena resident went to apply for a social security card on Wednesday only to learn that she already had one. But how’s that possible? That’s what Sandra Garcia asked the registering officer and it turned out to be a case of identity theft. When she was shown a computer image of the card, Garcia immediately recognized the picture of her long time friend, Dianna Estrada, who was staying at her house in 2009. Estrada, who lives in Guatemala, allegedly stole Garcia’s birth certificate to obtain the Belizean ID in her name. Estrada’s Guatemalan home address is listed on the Social Security card and police continue to investigate this case of identity theft.
