Investigator shows how to avoid identity theft

SARANAC LAKE - Investigator John D. Miner will present "Identity Theft" Thursday, March 18, in the Cantwell Community Room at the Saranac Lake Free Library, beginning at noon.

Miner joined the State Police in 1986 after studying psychology at SUNY Plattsburgh.
