Woman faces charges in identity theft cases

Jenna Carter, 34, possibly linked to other cases

SAN ANTONIO – A 34-year-old woman has been arrested on charges related to using a fake driver's license with another woman's name to rent out a storage unit.

However, it appears San Antonio police may be tying Jenna Carter to many more cases of identity theft.

An arrest warrant affidavit references one case in particular. It involves a woman who had reported a car burglary on Oct. 11 in which her purse, containing her driver's license, was stolen.

The affidavit stated that Carter rented a storage unit in the 8000 block of Fredericksburg Road the same day, apparently using a fake driver's license with the victim's name on and other identifying information on it.

On Oct. 15, members of the San Antonio Regional Task Force stopped a vehicle which proved to be stolen and detained Carter and a man on outstanding warrants and a charge of possession of a stolen vehicle, the affidavit stated.

At that time, investigators said they found the suspects with multiple forms of U.S. mail, credit cards, checks counterfeit ID cards and other documents belonging to about 40 different people and businesses.

Although both were taken into custody at that time, the new charges of fraudulent use of ID and tampering with government records were added on Wednesday.

The affidavit does not mention the name of the man who was detained or any additional charges that have been filed against him.
