Sheriff’s office makes fraud arrest

Published:
SPRING HILL -

Economic crime detectives arrested a Spring Hill woman Thursday night who admitted to opening a Bright House account in her infant’s name.

Denise Moloney, public information officer for the sheriff’s office, said the infant is Jamie Sue Bledsoe’s child, but she does not have custody.

Subpoenaed documents showed that Bledsoe, 30, opened a cable account in the baby’s name, and the work order listed Bledsoe’s driver’s license number. Bledsoe also signed for the account with the infant’s name, according to sheriff’s detectives.

Bledsoe was arrested Thursday night and admitted to using the baby’s name instead of her own because she had an outstanding bill with the company.

The woman was booked on $2,000 bond for the identity theft of a juvenile charge.

Court records show Bledsoe had her adjudication withheld in a 2012 grand theft case and was sentenced to three years probation. In 2002, Bledsoe avoided a felony charge of writing worthless checks through pre-trial diversion.
