(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)–A Las Vegas woman is accused of operating a check forgery lab in an apartment and a home.

Police say 32 year old Bridgette Chaplin was operating one of the largest identity theft operations they have seen in quite some time.

She is now charged with 62 felony counts, accused of obtaining and using the personal identification information of upwards of a thousand individuals.

Police believe she operated two forgery laboratories at an apartment complex on Rancho Drive and at a home on Stone Hollow. Several identity theft victims told police they believe their information was stolen in auto thefts.

Chaplin had been originally indicted on more than 40 counts in September. These latest allegations were contained in a superceding indictment. Chaplin has been jailed since June. Her bail has been increased to $624,000.
