Health worker charged with ID theft

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – A former employee at an Albany doctor's office is in jail charged with identity fraud. 44-year-old Sylvia Green, who worked at Albany OB-GYN, is charged with financial identity fraud.  

Investigators say Green, who worked as a phone nurse, refilling patients' prescriptions, stole the identity of a patient and used her information to try to take out a loan.

The loan company became suspicious and alerted the victim who called the Sheriff's Office. Green was arrested by Sheriff's Investigators Thursday.

She remains in the Dougherty County jail, and is no longer an employee at that doctor's office.
