Syracuse gym owner charged with identity theft

The owner of a Syracuse gym is accused of identity theft.

32-year-old Justin Edmond, the owner of "Just in Shape" gym, is charged with forgery and identity theft.

DeWitt police say Edmond opened an unauthorized credit card account in a woman's name. The victim learned of the credit card account after a collection agency contacted her. She later learned the account was opened in 2012 with all of her personal information.

Police say Edmond solicited the woman to work for him, got her personal information on a job application and opened the account in her name.

Edmond was arraigned in DeWitt Town Court and sent to the Justice Center without bail.

Investigators are still trying to determine if there are more victims. Anyone with information should contact Inv. Thomas Regan at (315) 449-3640 or
