A former Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry employee has been charged after investigators found stolen names and Social Security numbers of 269 public employees in her home, the Pioneer Press reports.

According to a criminal complaint, Roxanne Kay Deflorin, 49, of St. Paul, was charged Wednesday with identity theft and possession of a short-barreled shotgun after the stolen identities and weapons were found in a condemned Thomas Ave. home.

The complaint says Deflorin worked as an administrative assistant for the Department of Labor and Industry between 1994 and 2004, when she resigned from the position.

Deflorin was arrested after a Ramsey County probe found that Deflorin may have provided stolen names and personal information to three women who were being investigated on suspicion of identity theft, the complaint says.

Also charged Wednesday were Andrea Leigh Gunderson, 30, of Fridley; Shauntell Rose Burg, 32, of St. Paul; and Kristin Renee Warren, 40, of St. Paul, the Pioneer Press says.

The complaint said Deflorin "had accessed several documents related to these victims via her work computer."

Deflorin was booked Thursday into the Ramsey County Jail, and her bail was set at $100,000.
