KLEMME – A Klemme woman was charged with identity theft last week.
Tina Badker, 41, was charged with felony (D) identity theft on January 9th in Hancock County District Court.
Badker is listed as the general manager of The Shamrock bar in Klemme, according to its Facebook page.
An NIT reader on January 12th submitted a news tip expressing concern about the charge against Badker, saying “this is (a) very bad thing for the public as she owns the Shamrock Bar in Klemme IA and works with people’s credit cards, ID’s, checks lots of personal information.”
The charges were filed after a Hancock County Sheriff’s Department investigation. Records show the offense date as July 11, 2011.
Badker faces a preliminary hearing on January 24th and an arraignment hearing on February 26th.
