Former radio host arrested for identity theft

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller announced charges Tuesday against former radio host Kelli Jack-Kelly.

According Zoeller, Jack-Kelly committed the fraud by stealing the identities of four family members.

The probable cause affidavit states that Jack-Kelly committed the crimes in Anderson at various businesses including PetSmart, King Gyros and Deluxe Donuts using credit cards.

Jack-Kelly was being held in the Marion County Jail. Her bond has been set at $10,000.

24-Hour News 8 went to Jack -Kelly’s home Tuesday morning. On her door a hand written “do not disturb” sign was posted. The sign also directed all questions to an attorney.

Calls were placed to WFMS, where Jack-Kelly has worked in the past as a radio host. It’s unclear if the station will release a comment. Jack-Kelly’s attorney also declined to comment.

Marion County Sheriffs Deputies picked up Jack-Kelly in Marion County on a arrest warrant. The 43-year-old will be transported to the Madison County Jail that’s where the crimes were committed.

Investigators believe Jack-Kelly would intercept credit card offers in the mail for her father and mother-in-law and then open the accounts. Indiana Office of Attorney General is warning Hoosiers to shred all unwanted credit card offers.

” A lot of times you don’t know you received an unsolicited credit card offer in the mail, that is why it is important to be diligent and monitor your credit report,” said Deputy Director for Consumer Protection Terry Tolliver, with the Indiana Office of Attorney General.
