A 55-year-old Waikoloa woman has been charged by police with identity theft and seven other offenses including assaulting a police officer.

Janice Feeney, who police said lives in the Waikoloa area but has no permanent address, was arrested Monday after police received a report that she had stolen jewelry and cash from a 90-year-old female family member visiting from California.

When police attempted to arrest Feeney, she allegedly resisted and struck an officer in the chest. The officer did not require medical attention.

Police on Tuesday executed a search warrant on the condominium where Feeney had been staying and recovered additional property belonging to the victim.

On Wednesday, police charged Feeney with two counts of theft, identify theft, theft of a credit card, fraudulent use of a credit card, unauthorized possession of personal information, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest.
