Checks, Credit Card, Bank Account Numbers Stolen

BOSTON -- Authorities have arrested three people accused of stealing the identities of disabled veterans living at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Bedford and using the data to make purchases worth more than $1,000.

Christina DiIorio-Sterling, spokeswoman for U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan, said Wilfredo Hernandez, 41, and his mother, Gladys Hernandez, 60, of Lowell, pleaded not guilty hours after they were arrested Monday.

A third suspect, Jessica Rivera, 27, will appear in court Oct. 9.
Prosecutors said the younger Hernandez and Rivera used to work for the hospital. They allegedly stole checks, credit card and bank account numbers from combat veterans living there and shared the information with the older Hernandez.

If convicted, they each face up to 15 years imprisonment.
