Two women, including the ringleader, and three men were arrested in Lake Forest Park this week. The investigation uncovered evidence of the Bellevue-based, organized identity theft ring. The woman who led the ring received mail and personal financial documents obtained by her crew through car prowls, mail thefts, and residential burglaries in Bellevue and the greater Eastside. After getting the financial documents, the ringleader would use computers, digital cameras and imaging software, air brushes and laminating supplies to produce legitimate looking Washington Driver’s Licenses, the Bellevue Police reported. The forged IDs and the victims’ real credit cards and washed checks would be used to make expensive purchases at stores and to cash large checks at local banks, the Bellevue Police reported.

She and one of her associates got involved in an ID theft and assault at an AT&T store in Kirkland on March 30, but fled the scene before law enforcement could arrest them, according to Bellevue Police.
