Man arrested in elder identity theft

Suspect allegedly assisted associate with caper

News editor

A Hillsboro man is charged with identity theft and identity fraud in connection to similar crimes against an elderly woman alleged to have been committed by his associate.

Conan Glickman, 47, was taken into custody Jan. 16 on one count each of identity theft and identity fraud, and released the same day on a $20,000 surety bond.

Glickman’s arrest came 10 days after a woman believed to be his girlfriend, Christina Greany, 36, Hillsboro, was jailed on four charges of identity theft and identity fraud. Jail records did not indicate whether Greany posted bond when she was released the next day.

Hillsboro police chief Dan Kinning said the alleged crimes are connected.

“He’s associated with her,” Kinning said. “He kind of after the fact assisted with her theft.”

Greany was working at Parkside Homes when she allegedly obtained a resident’s bank account number, Kinning said. She left Parkside Homes and subsequently went to work for Salem Home, where she was recently terminated.

“They both used it,” he said.

Kinning said he began receiving reports of irregularities with the resident’s account around Oct. 15.

“Two of her sons have communicated with us,” he said. “They were the ones that reported things. They (fraudulent expenses) came in over time, several of them. We’re still not done.”

Kinning said such cases are often difficult to investigate because companies often fail to respond to requests for information or subpoenas.

“There are more, but we can’t get information out of them yet,” Kinning said.

[Editor’s note: Glickman was employed at Hoch Publishing in Marion for three months in 2016.]
