Jocelyn Kirsch of Philly’s Bonnie and Clyde duo fired from job for identity theft concerns

    Being convicted of and sentenced to jail for identity theft doesn’t make you a model candidate for a cashier job.

    Jocelyn Kirsch has learned this the hard way. The Drexel grad, one half of Philly’s Bonnie & Clyde duo that made $119,000 in an identity theft scheme, has been fired from her California cashier job.

    The Daily Pennsylvanian reports customers were worried about Kirsch’s history, which includes making keys to 40 different apartments to steal credit cards and other personal information.


    Kirsch is on supervised release after being sentenced to five years in prison in November 2008. Her partner in crime, Penn grad Edward Anderton, was sentenced to four years.
