A Growing List Of Charges Against A Former Lakeville Principal
The list of felony charges against Christopher Endicott, the former Century Middle School principal in Lakeville, is growing. The Star Tribune reported that on top of previous burglary charges and allegations that he stalked a police detective who was investigating Endicott for alleged hacking, you can now add identity theft, credit card fraud, and more stalking charges to the list.
The Dakota County Attorney's Office announced Friday that Endicott is facing the new felony charges in relation to stealing money or personal information from at least 15 people and stalking one of them.
Endicott allegedly cracked security measures and got access to bank accounts, credit cards, airline rewards programs and store memberships to such places as Sam's Club in relation to the 15 people. Many of the people affected by Endicott's hacking had connections to Endicott's former school district as fellow employees.
Endicott then allegedly used victims' credit card information to make purchases, including charges on pornography websites, a gold and silver dealer and an online bookstore.
The former principal is currently in custody in Crow Wing County on criminal charges that were recently filed in North Dakota. It is expected that he will be moved to the Dakota County jail for his initial court appearances related to the latest allegations.
