A federal grand jury has indicted seven people for identity theft. U.S. Attorney Carter Stewart says six of them are citizens of Zimbabwe who lived in the Cincinnati area at one time. He says they used the stolen identities to obtain millions in fraudulent income tax returns:
"The scheme was so efficient and well planned that they often had the refunds in hand before the actual taxpayers even filed their legitimate tax returns."
You must take the test. That's the ruling from the Ohio Peace Officer Training Commission. Cincinnati Police Chief James Craig challenged a requirement that he take Ohio's standard police exam. But Thursday the commission ruled his decades of police work don't exempt him. During an interview with WVXU just hours prior to the decision Craig remained resolute, he won't take it.
