A Saratoga Springs man is accused of stealing a woman’s identity to create online accounts and use her tax return.

Matthew J. Raia, 24, is accused of fraudulent activity worth almost $6,000, according to the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Department. He was charged with first-degree identity theft, a class D felony, and fourth-degree grand larceny, a class E felony.

Investigators said Raia cooperated with the investigation.

It was not his first felony arrest. In 2010, he pleaded guilty to a charge of third-degree burglary and was sentenced to five years’ probation.

In that case, Raia broke into an apartment on Clinton Street and stole a Playstation 3 and a Madden 2010 football game.
