Albany -- A Darton College employee is charged with stealing the identities of two co-workers.

 44 year old Hope Acree was indicted Wednesday on 13 counts of identity fraud, forgery, and theft. Acree was a part time employee at Darton's Fitness Center for three years. She was fired today.

 Prosecutors say Acree stole two co-workers personal information, and used it to obtain at least four loans totaling more than $30,000. Dougherty Chief Assistant D.A. Greg Edwards said "unfortunately we find that many of the folks that do this type of crime have some direct access to the victim. A relative, or co-worker, as alleged in this particular case. "

Prosecutors say Acree used some of the money to help pay for her son's college education. Acree has not yet been arrested on the charges.
