Floyd Co. man's alleged false information becomes identity theft charges
A Floyd County man was arrested last week after police say he provided false information to both them and to pretrial services.
According to court documents, Todd L. Perkins, 42, of Betsy Layne, used a false name when he was arrested for public intoxication by a controlled substance. Perkins allegedly also provided the trooper with a false date of birth, and a false Social Security number. Court records show Perkins then allegedly tried to pass off the false information to pre-trial services.
Perkins was charged with two counts of theft of identity of another without consent. Identity theft is a class D felony, and if found guilty, Perkins could receive one to five years in prison and a fine.
