Authorities say they've busted a major identity theft ring that targeted hundreds of state employees.

One of the four women charged, 47-year-old Roxanne Deflornin, used to work for the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry and had access to other state employees' social security numbers. The Star Tribune, citing charges filed this week in Ramsey County, reports that Deflornin passed that information along to Shauntell Burg, 32, and Burg then traded her information to a third woman named Kristin Warren, 40, for drugs.

Warren was arrested in the summer of 2012 with more than 200 stolen identities allegedly in her possession.

Also charged with identity theft in connection with the ring is 30-year-old Andrea Gunderson.

The four women "possessed social security numbers, dates of birth and drivers license numbers" of well over 300 people, KARE reports. Authorities say the women used the information to make purchases. In some cases, items purchased were later sold to pawn shops.

"These individuals caused havoc and great concern for the personal identities of hundreds of hard-working employees and retirees," Ramsey County Attorney John Choi said, according to the KARE report. "Thanks to the hard work of law enforcement, in particular the Ramsey County Sheriff's Office, these defendants can now be brought to justice."

They look manly, yet hideously dykish. They must vote Democrat.

Plus has anybody noticed that the ugly women are the only ones making comments on what men are saying about these criminals looks. Nothing uglier than a women with low self-esteem.

I did comment on their behavior. ("her bad decisions") you only chose to read an absorb what you already made up in your mind of men because of your bad choices in men. Swearing like that only makes you come off as unintelligent.

"Rough" is a fully appropriate adjective for these folks.  If I was a bouncer working a bar and saw them come in as a group, I would expect trouble from them.  Rough doesn't mean ugly, it means "Coarse of manner and potentially dangerous"  No misogyny here, unless your skin is only a molecule thick and you go into flame mode anytime someone mentions a female persons outward appearance.  Also, I know lots of "rough" looking people who are gorgeous in every way.  Vin Diesel and Angelina Jolie, stunning and rough, so pull your overly defensive perfectly good looking heads out of your well proportioned keesters and get a life.

Because commenting on their appearance is somehow more important than their behavior.......when men commit crimes we don't call them "ugly" or "hoes"....shame on you. And FUCK your misogynist standards.

What are the circumstances that led to their behavior?

The one on the right could have been decent looking if not for bad decisions. Not even a makeover could help the other 3 ugly ducklings.

You know they wouldn't have commented on their looks if they were men. I get so sick of it!

If a teardrop under the eyes indicates the number of your murder victims, what does the star denote?

City Pages Minneapolis, home of quality journalism. I can only imagine what the headline might have been had the culprits been captured after a thrilling Pedal Pub chase through the streets of NE.

Roxanne, you don't have to put on the red light

Those days are over
You don't have to sell your body to the night
Roxanne, you don't have to wear that dress tonight
Walk the streets for money
You don't care if it's wrong or if it's right

@Stefanie Megan Brown Do they not look "rough?"  If you, with your oh-so-enlightened standards, ran into these 4, what might you expect to happen?  What sort of place would you expect to find them?  Would you lend them $50, or your cell phone, or your credit card?

I'm sure City Pages is perfectly happy to make a cheap joke at these women's expense.  But you've lived a fortunate and sheltered existence so far if you can look at these mugshots and not think to yourself, "Those are four rough-looking women."  And if you don't, you're at pretty serious risk.  Women who look like this tend to correlate more strongly than most with instances of trouble visited on those who are around them.

It's nice to make very 3rd-year-at-Macalester strongly-worded pronouncements.  But you're going to have to learn how to look out for yourself.


And you don't capitalize "bell hooks."

@Stefanie Megan Brown Just to let you know stupid City Pages makes fun of almost every single funny mugshot they can find.  It's a very popular posting on their website.  They do it all the time when they make fun of Wisconsin.  Men and women.  Why don't you pull your head out of your ass and focus on real examples of sexist organizations with actual power like the Republican Party.
