Chino woman charged with Identity Theft and Use of False Documents



SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – A Chino woman has been charged with two felony counts of Use of False Documents and one felony count of Identity Theft following an investigation conducted by the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office, Workers’ Compensation Insurance Fraud Unit.

On Dec. 20, 2013, 30-year-old Leticia Serapio (pictured above) filed a workers’ compensation claim alleging that she sustained multiple injuries while performing her job duties as a machine operator for a Chino-based nutritional supplement company.

According to District Attorney Investigator Rodney Tamparong, who is assigned to the case, during the investigation it became apparent that Serapio’s social security number belonged to another person and that her Resident Alien Card was fake.

After obtaining an arrest warrant, on Sept. 30, 2014, District Attorney Investigators arrested Serapio at her place of residence in the City of Chino and she was booked into the West Valley Detention Center on $50,000 bail. Arraignment is scheduled Nov. 25, 2014 in Dept. 19 of the Rancho Cucamonga Superior Court. The case is being prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney David Simon.
