Riverside Woman Charged with Identity Theft


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

On June 13, 2011, 22-year-old Blanca Rodriguez alleged she was injured as a result of her duties as an Interstate Cleaning Corporation janitor assigned to Ontario Mills shopping mall. As a result, she was given treatment for pain to her lower back, knees and calves.

When Rodriguez filed a workers’ compensation claim alleging her injuries, the following investigation revealed that Rodriguez had filed the claim using a social security number which was not issued to her.

The case was referred to the District Attorney’s Workers’ Compensation Fraud Unit for investigation in April 2013.

Charges were filed April 14, 2014, and the following day, Rodriguez was taken into custody by District Attorney Investigators and transported to West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga where bail was set at $100,000.

If convicted on all counts, Rodriguez faces 3 years in County Prison.

Arraignment is scheduled for June 17, 2014, in Rancho Cucamonga Superior Court. The case is being prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Scott Byrd.
