The Edgewood Police Department is trying to identify this woman wanted for stealing thousands of dollars through identity theft and check fraud.

On the morning of Jan. 14, officers say she prowled a vehicle parked at North Hill Fitness on Meridian Avenue East. She smashed the window and stole a purse containing multiple credit and debit cards, identification, cash, and a black mini iPad. Then on Jan. 21 a checkbook was stolen during a vehicle prowl in Covington. Later that day, police say she used the Edgewood victim’s stolen ID and debit card to cash approximately $6,000 of the Covington victim’s stolen checks at six different Key Bank branches in Hawks Prairie, Lakewood, Fircrest and Tacoma.

The suspect was driving a newer silver Chrysler 300 sedan. If you know her name, call Crime Stoppers of Tacoma-Pierce County at 1 (800) 222-TIPS. All calls are anonymous and you will receive up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and charges in the case. 

This is one of the suspects featured this weekend on Washington’s Most Wanted on Friday night at 11 p.m. on Q13 FOX and Saturday night at 9:30 p.m. on JOEtv and 10:30 p.m. on Q13 FOX. Let’s make sure there’s nowhere left to hide!
