Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation arrested a former state employee for identity theft trafficking after sending personal information of approximately 6,300 Nashville Metro School teachers and state employees to his personal email account.
Steven Hunter, 24, of Hermitage, was arrested last night and booked into the Davidson County Jail on a $10,000 bond. He has since posted bond and been released from jail.
After TBI seized his computer from his home, a forensic analysis of the computer showed that Hunter had researched selling social security numbers and read about individuals arrested for identity theft.
TBI does not have any evidence that Hunter has disseminated any of the personal information he obtained.
