Mass. woman sentenced for ID theft, Salem shopping spree
Couture was originally indicted on 10 charges that included identity fraud and theft for shopping trips that happened at T.J. Maxx, Kohl’s, Lowe’s and J.C. Penney in Salem.
Her plea deal requires her to serve two to five years in state prison on a 2011 conviction for hiding six cans of stolen baby formula from Derry police outside of a Burger King restaurant, according to court records.
Prosecutors say Couture tried to spend thousands of dollars on a West Virginia woman’s credit, and had photo identifications that helped her impersonate four other women living in Florida, Maryland and Missouri.
But that transaction was denied by loss prevention workers, police said. Later that day, Couture tried to obtain a fraudulent credit account at J.C. Penney and at T.J. Maxx, according to indictments.
Couture went to a Lowe’s store in Salem on Oct. 14, 2012, with another woman and filled two shopping carts full of merchandise that totaled more than $1,000. She was barred from making the purchase after applying for a credit account using the West Virginia ID, police said.
