EVERETT — A prolific identity thief has been sentenced in Snohomish County Superior Court to more than five years in prison.

Cassandra Aguilar, 30, pleaded guilty in June to multiple counts of identity theft and possession of stolen property. She was sentenced earlier this week.

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 more than a dozen counts of identity theft, financial fraud and possessing stolen property.

Everett police said Aguilar used counterfeit ID in some of the victims’ names to pass the bad checks.
