BOLIVAR, Mo. (AP) _ Missouri authorities have charged two women

in Georgia and Florida with stealing a Polk County retiree's

identity.

Patricia Lisk of Bolivar says she didn't know anything was wrong

until she got a call from Dell computers asking about 36-hundred

dollars in equipment charged to an account in her name.

Investigators with Polk County and the Missouri Attorney

General's office tracked the purchases to an address in Savannah,

Georgia, where the equipment was then sent to Miami.

They have charged 37-year-old Diana Johnson of Savannah and

26-year-old Shante Berry of Miami with one felony count each of

identity theft.

Officials have already charged Berry's 44-year-old uncle, Henry

Lee Berry, with stealing a Festus woman's identity and making

38-hundred dollars in purchases.
