(BROWNSTOWN) - A Jackson County inmate is facing additional charges after she attempted to raise bond money by selling her Social Security card and those cards of other inmates.

38-year-old Angel Dawn Lovaas of Seymour was being held on a theft charge when police began an investigation Monday that led to additional Level 6 felony charges of attempted identity deception and conspiracy to commit identity theft being filed against her.

The investigation began when jail officers received information that Lovaas and a former inmate had offered to sell Social Security cards belonging to Lovaas and other current inmates to get money for her to post bond.

The offer was sent through the United States Postal Service to an address in Jennings County, but the letter was returned undeliverable to the other inmate because that inmate had been released from jail before the letter arrived.

The letter was then processed by the jail staff, who discovered Lovaas and the other inmate were trying to sell the Social Security cards to people who apparently were from Mexico for false identification purposes.

Police are planning to file charges against the other person involved.

Lovaas, who was arrested on the Level 6 felony theft charge in April, is still being held in the Jackson County Jail on a $1,005 cash bond.
