Colesburg Woman Arrested on Theft Charges

A Colesburg woman was arrested last week on theft charges.

The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office says 48-year old Jill Marie Schwietert faces charges of Identity Theft, Unauthorized Credit Card, 2nd Degree Theft and 3rd Degree Theft.

Sheriff John LeClere says Schwietert opened several credit cards in the name of a relative, ordered merchandise with those cards and had it shipped to her home. He says the victim received the billing from the credit cards and discovered the merchandise had been ordered by Schwietert.

LeClere says Schwietert also wrote two checks to the victim that were returned for non-sufficient funds.
