An Auburn woman was charged Tuesday after she allegedly posed as her boyfriend and sent an email to his employer from his account.
According to Auburn Police Deputy Chief Roger Anthony, Shannon E. Heffernan, of 55 Chapman Ave., and her 27-year-old boyfriend were in the midst of an argument when Heffernan sent an email to her boyfriend's employer on Aug. 29. Someone the victim worked with viewed the email and advised him about it, Anthony said. The boyfriend then reported the incident to the police.
After an investigation by the APD, a warrant was issued for Heffernan's arrest. The 25-year-old turned herself into police on Tuesday and was charged with computer trespass, a felony, and third-degree unlawful possession of personal identification information and tampering with private communications.
She will be arraigned Thursday in Auburn City Court.
