Former State Employee Used Confidential Database To Commit Identity Theft
SEATTLE (AP) — The Washington attorney general’s office has filed charges against a former state employee accused of using confidential state databases to commit identity theft and steal unclaimed property.
The state charged Timothy Darrell Fultz on Wednesday with multiple counts of theft, money laundering and computer trespass. He is accused of taking more than $150,000 in unclaimed property through the Department of Revenue’s ClaimYourCash.org website.
He is also charged with one count of unlawful possession of a firearm connected with an out-of-state felony burglary conviction in 1989.
The state filed the charges in King County Superior Court. The Renton man is scheduled to be arraigned on June 11.
