Fairfax housing employee stole client's identity, police say

A woman who worked for Fairfax County's Department of Housing and Community Development has been arrested for allegedly using a client's information to rent an apartment in Centreville, Fairfax police said Tuesday.

The housing department learned of the case in March, investigated and turned their findings over to Fairfax financial crimes detectives last month.

Police allege that Leslie Y. Jones, 40, of the 14100 block of Betsy Ross Lane in Centreville, used another person's personal information to rent an apartment, Officer Tawny Wright said. It was not clear whether Jones lived in the apartment, Wright said.

Jones has since been terminated from the housing department, Wright said. Jones surrendered to police last Wednesday on a charge of felony identity theft with the intent to defraud.
