PHOENIX -- Maricopa County Sheriff's Office detectives have arrested three people on identity theft charges, one in Mesa and two in Phoenix.

Authorities said a 34-year-old man has been arrested for using stolen identification to get a job at a Mesa restaurant. The investigation began in August when a woman reported being denied benefits, including food stamps, after being told that her household income was too high.

Detectives eventually learned the suspect had been using the victim's identify. Two other identity theft arrests were made this week at a Phoenix business after a four-month investigation.

All three suspects are held on suspicion of identity theft and forgery.
