Alissa Elaine Kramer

NEWKIRK — A warrant is issued for Alissa Elaine Kramer, 36, Ponca City, by the Kay County District Court.

Kramer is facing a felony count of identity theft-unlawfully obtaining personal identifying information information.

The charge was filed on June 29 after police investigated a report of a stolen wallet on April 26. The owner of the wallet, Rachel Hutchins, told police it was stolen from her office at Via Christi. The next day Hutchins contacted police and reported that Security Finance called her and said someone was using her information online to apply for a $2,000 loan.

Police obtained a search warrant and contacted Google. Information was obtained pertaining to the email address used by the subject applying for the loan. The phone number came back to Kramer, who was also employed at Via Christi. The email address came back to Kramer’s father.

Police questioned Kramer. She reportedly denied the allegations of taking the purse and trying to obtain the loan. Bond is endorsed at $5,000.
