Michele J. Roe, 55, of St. Petersburg, was charged with one count of fraudulent use of personal identification information.
The investigation began April 4 when the 79-year-old co-worker reported her personal information had been used in an attempt to open a Capital One credit card online.
During the course of the investigation, deputies said they discovered the unauthorized online credit card account application was submitted from a computer at Nina Harris Elementary School in Pinellas Park.
Deputies said Roe, an assistant bookkeeper at Nina Harris, got the woman’s personal identification by using school records.
The fraudulent credit card submitted by Roe was stopped before being mailed. The co-worker suffered no financial loss.
