A 30-year-old McHenry woman was charged Monday with identity theft, accused of stealing someone's personal information to get a job, Carpentersville police said.

Adriana E. Campos of 1615 Knoll Ave. was charged with possession of fraudulent identification and financial identity theft, police said.

A 34-year-old Belvidere woman recently contacted Carpentersville police after she got a bill for more than $300 from the Internal Revenue Service for nonreported earnings from Trim Rite Industries, 801 Commerce Parkway, Carpentersville.

The victim said she never worked for the company and felt someone was using her identity, police said.

Two detectives went to Trim Rite and recovered a fraudulent resident card given to Trim Rite when Campos started her employment on Oct. 18, 2005, police said.

The detectives then arrested Campos in McHenry. Campos said in court she is not a U.S. citizen and has a 3-year-old child at home.

Furthermore, Immigration and Customs Enforcement placed a hold on her for possible deportation.

Campos was unable to post a $1,500 bond and was taken to the Kane County jail.

Campos' next court date is Nov. 29 at the Kane County Judicial Center.
