A Tucson woman, Randi Marie Hartjen has been indicted by a State Grand Jury for allegedly stealing multiple victims’ identities.

Hartjen was specifically charged with six counts each of Fraudulent Schemes and Artifices, Theft of Means of Transportation, and Forgery, and three counts each of Aggravated Taking the Identity of Another and Taking the Identity of Another.

Between September 2018, and May 2019, Hartjen allegedly stole the identities of six different Phoenix-area women. Hartjen then purportedly used the stolen identities to order duplicate driver’s licenses in those victims’ names and have them sent to various addresses in the Tucson area. As alleged in the indictment, Hartjen used those driver’s licenses to rent or purchase outright the following six vehicles:

● 2018 Nissan Sentra

● 2018 Jaguar F-Pace

● 2016 Cadillac ATS

● 2017 Lincoln MLC

● 2019 Buick Enclave

● 2014 GMC Acadia Denali

Hartjen was reportedly stopped by police while driving the Denali in midtown Tucson, and all but the Lincoln MLC have been recovered by law enforcement.

  2. Won’t bother responding to “millions”. Maybe immigrants are harder to catch because they buy consumables like food, alcohol and drugs instead of six late model cars.

    • Estimates are from 11 to 20 million illegals. They can’t work without an SSN, so yes, millions of stolen identities. And if that SSN belongs to you, you may find your credit destroyed by unpaid bills. People have been denied social security benefits because some illegal has already claimed them. Good luck getting some social security bureaucrat to fix that, or some credit agency to fix the other.

    • First off…. so-called “immigrants” aren’t that hard to catch. Second… The neighborhood where I lived years ago was overrun by illegals who were able to purchase houses because they were coached by “helpful” hispanic bankers and hispanic real estate agents on how to get through the system. The Washington (Com)Post even ran a front page article several pages long on illegals in the area including a local who admitted using stolen ID and a stolen social security number to buy his house in this same area. By the way, when the 2008 economy tanked, nearly every illegal hispanic who bought a house there ended up foreclosing on it (they bought high) and the people who benefited from it? The same hispanic “helpers” who gave the illegals the advice in the first place, but never explained taxes, missing payments, etc. The “helpers” bought all the foreclosures and flipped them.

  3. Oddly, millions of illegal immigrants steal identities (social security numbers) and never get prosecuted. Why is this? Why are foreigners immune from prosecution for the same crimes that American citizens are held accountable?

  4. A couple of years ago I found a rattlesnake in my yard. Not too unusual around here. However, that night or early in the morning my locked mailbox was broken into. Nothing in it, they just popped the lock and moved on, hitting the whole street.

    But if only I had hindsight! I could have stuck that rattlesnake into the mailbox overnight. That would have been epic!
