Identity theft charges pile up for suspect
The woman, 30, was released pending trial March 1 and allegedly tried to open a Car Toys credit card account under someone else’s name the next day.
And the allegations keep piling up.
An Everett detective recently filed a separate identity theft case against the woman alleging at least 20 fraudulent checks on someone else’s account. Marysville police, meanwhile, are pursuing four forgery cases and three identity theft cases.
When detectives searched her car with a court-approved warrant March 14, they reportedly found checks and bank and credit cards belonging to more than a half dozen people. All had been stolen — some from mailboxes, others from cars.
The suspect was arrested for investigation of 15 counts of identity theft, financial fraud and possessing stolen property.
Everett police said the woman used counterfeit ID in some of the victims’ names to pass the bad checks.
