An arraignment has been set for the East Grand Forks man facing 21 charges...after authorities say dozens of people's identities were stolen in the area.

Troy Lafferty had his preliminary hearing Wednesday.

He was the owner of Techmedics in Grand Forks.

That's a computer repair shop.

Police say Lafferty took out credit cards in the victim's names.

WDAZ talked to several of the identity theft victims.

Some say they had stopped by Lafferty's business...others had not.

Lafferty will be back in court next week.
