A Cuyahoga County grand jury has indicted a Lake County woman on felony charges that accuse her of stealing her sister’s Social Security card and using her sister’s identifiers to obtain an Ohio Identification (ID) Card.

Taquila R. Herring, 25, of Willowick, was indicted on two counts of tampering with records, two counts of forgery, two counts of uttering forged documents and one count of identity fraud following an investigation by BMV Investigations’ Cleveland District.

The investigation found that, after stealing the Social Security Card of her sister, Elizabeth Herring, Taquila Herring purchased an Ohio ID Card at the Euclid Licensing Agency in December 2010. Taquila Herring, who has prior convictions for burglary, aggravated assault and attempted aggravated vehicular assault, obtained the second ID because she had outstanding arrest warrants under her own identity, the investigation found.

Taquila Herring is scheduled to be arraigned on the charges on Aug. 5.
