A 25-year-old Moses Lake woman is behind bars today after deputies arrested her on charges stemming from a recent identity theft.
Nakita M. Clark was arrested during a raid at her home Thursday morning at 7503 Rainier Road Northeast. The raid was the result of an investigation of a fraudulently obtained Kohl’s store credit card acquired in the name of another Moses Lake woman. The victim notified deputies on December 8 based on a credit alert she had received.
Kohl’s fraud investigators provided deputies with the list and values of purchased items and the Rainier Road address where the items were shipped. From inside Clark’s home, deputies recovered nearly 50 pieces of Kohl’s merchandise totaling $1,775, including clothing, shoes, appliances, beauty and haircare products, electronics, home furnishings, and jewelry.
“I’m very happy deputies were able to arrest this suspect,” said Sheriff Tom Jones. “All too often, identity theft investigations don’t result in an arrest because of the complexity of Internet fraud. This time, I’m happy we were able to put a stop to it. Great job by deputies!”
