MONTGOMERY – A Nashville, Tennessee, man has been locked up on a felony charge of identity theft for allegedly using another man’s name to gain employment and cash paychecks, according to state police.

Wilson Camill Gonzalez-Sanjose, 27, is alleged to have used the man’s name to cash checks on Patriot Lane in Clinton Township in April, police said.

The victim, Erick Balders, lives in San Antonio, Texas, and police there alerted local authorities that Gonzalez-Sanjose was using Balders’ identity and social security number to cash checks in the area.

When police tracked down Gonzalez-Sanjose on Patriot Lane on April 23, he identified himself as Balders, court records state.

No information was provided on how long Gonzalez-Sanjose had been here or what brought him to the area in the first place. Arraigned before District Judge Jon E. Kemp, he remains jailed in the Lycoming County Prison in lieu of $100,000 bail.
