TULSA, OK (KFOR) – An Oklahoma man was caught in a tax scheme and admitted to using a public website to gain personal information.

Kevin Petty was arrested by authorities during questioning at the scene of a burglary after he received a text from the IRS that another person’s tax refund had been deposited in his account.

Authorities found that Petty had personal information for as many as 20 Oklahomans. Petty admitted to officers all the information came from public court documents.

According to KFOR, authorities suggest Oklahomans search themselves on the court network and make sure that none of their personal information is available to the public.
