A 41-year-old Aurora woman allegedly created false identities and collected pensions for them from a Lincolnshire company, authorities say.

Tisa Crawford, of the 1800 block of Cattail Circle, Aurora, allegedly stole the money from AON Hewitt in Lincolnshire, according to court documents filed on April 4. She has since been released on $50,000 bond.

Crawford has been charged with felony counts of theft, computer fraud and wire fraud, court records indicate. She is due in court on May 2. She could not be reached for comment.

“She had gone in and created fake retirement accounts,” said Lincolnshire Police Investigator John-Erik Anderson.

Crawford allegedly created four fake identities as early as 2009, and had pension payments in excess of $100,000 sent to her checking and savings account, Anderson said.

Lincolnshire police were contacted April 2, after Aon Hewitt conducted an internal investigation. The Lake County State’s Attorneys office conducted a felony review of the case and approved the felony charges against Crawford, Anderson said.

Crawford was arrested April 4, and posted bond April 5, according to the Lake County Circuit Clerk’s office.
