Skagit Co. woman used stolen ID to get loans, prosecutors say

Herald staff

A Skagit County woman was charged Tuesday with three counts of first-degree theft, forgery and identity theft for passing herself off as another woman and taking out a series of bank and car loans.

Events started Aug. 5 when a woman’s car was broken into and her purse was stolen. The purse contained her driver’s license, Social Security card, military identification, personal checks and credit cards, said Coleen St. Clair, deputy prosecutor.

On Aug. 6, Amy Jean Glover, 27, of Sedro-Woolley assumed the identity of the theft victim, St. Clair said.

According to charging papers filed in Snohomish County Superior Court, Glover first went to a loan company in Marysville Aug. 16 and applied for a $5,000 loan in the theft victim’s name. Three days later she was approved for a loan of $4,000 and was given a check.

On Aug. 17, she went to another loan institution and was given a $3,500 loan in the theft victim’s name.

The $4,000 check was cashed at a bank in Mill Creek, and some of the money was deposited into checking and savings accounts in two banks, St. Clair said. She also applied for a Visa credit card in the theft victim’s name.

In addition, Glover is accused of taking out a $4,500 loan in Skagit County under the victim’s name, papers said.

Also on Aug. 17, Glover went to a used car dealership in Everett where she purchased a 1994 Eagle Talon for $7,400 using the theft victim’s name. She signed several documents using the wrong name and signed numerous papers to complete the sale, court documents alleged.

On two occasions, Glover was stopped for traffic infractions in the Eagle Talon. In both cases she showed the theft victim’s driver’s license, and the citations were issued in that name, St. Clair said.
