A woman is facing more than 50 felony charges, as well as a couple of misdemeanors, in an identity theft investigation.

Jones County deputies arrested Samantha Bowser, 26, Tuesday.  Deputies said she's facing a slew of charges including identity theft, financial card fraud and worthless checks.

Investigators said two people, an active duty female Marine and an active duty male Coast Guard member, are victims in the incidents.  The suspect in the case had previously resided in Jones County in the home with one of the victims and had also been involved in some type of personal relationship with the other.

Ms. Bowser was placed into the custody of the Jones County Jail under a $50,000 Secured Bond and posted that bond on Wednesday, February 6th.
