BELVIDERE (WIFR) – Over 80 people may have had their debit and credit card information stolen after police arrest an employee at the Culver’s in Belvidere for identity theft.
28-year-old Curtis Peck is out on bond. Police say they had noticed an increase in the number of identity thefts since December 2013. Earlier this week, police searched a home in Rockford. They found an electronic card writer, credit cards, and drug paraphernalia.
Investigators believe Peck was getting credit and debit card information while he worked the drive-thru window at Culver’s in Belvidere. He was the assistant manager there. The investigation remains ongoing.
