GLOVERSVILLE - Authorities say a Gloversville woman targeted innocent people, stole their identities and pocketed thousands of dollars in taxpayer money.

The State Tax Department says Crystal Sweet filed fake personal income tax returns in the names and social security numbers of several unsuspecting Gloversville residents.

In all, she's accused of claiming roughly $30,000 in unjustified refunds.
