KEITHVILLE, LA (KSLA) - A Keithville couple is behind bars charged with multiple counts of identity theft, after allegedly stealing mail from their neighbors and using it to obtain stolen credit cards, make unauthorized purchases, wire money out of victims' accounts and open new credit cards.

Christina Renfroe, 37, and Anthony Stout, 33, are also accused of using the personal information of several of Renfroe's home health care patients to do the same thing.

The Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office says the couple stole nearly $27,000 from the six victims, including a 95-year-old woman whom Renfroe cared for as a nurse.

Both were arrested at the Caddo Correctional Center, where they were already in jail for similar, related offenses.

Sheriff's Detectives Doug Smith and Bobby Herring charged Renfroe and Stout with five counts each of identity theft. In addition, Stout was charged with forgery.
