Veteran San Diego city employee pleads innocent to ID theft charges

A city public works employee accused of using her work computer to gain personal information on customers, as well as stealing mail from post office boxes, pleaded innocent Tuesday to 36 criminal charges. San Diego police officials said the identity theft resulting from the suspect's alleged access to the city's water billing database is believed to be limited to four individuals, one of whom was the suspect's immediate supervisor. All four have been notified.

When Lawrence was arrested, she was carrying a piece of paper profiling six possible identity theft victims, including the deputy booking clerk at the county jail, Stein alleged.
