Woman Trafficked ID Theft Information, Police Say

St. Louis County Police said when she was arrested, a woman was hiding names, birth dates and social security numbers of seven people in a very intimate area.

A North County woman was discovered concealing stolen information that would have been used to steal identities of seven people, St. Louis County Police said.

Apryl Rene Washington, 30, of the 1400 block of Monopoly Drive in unincorporated North County, was charged Oct. 30 with trafficking in stolen identities.

St. Louis County Police said Washington was arrested at 6:30 p.m. May 22 in the 1100 block of Benham Road on an outstanding warrant from the city of St. Louis.

A female officer discovered she concealed a wallet in her vaginal area. A piece of paper inside the wallet contained seven names, with dates of birth and social security numbers of the people. All were connected to an adult day care center in Spanish Lake.

Washington said she had never seen the paper before and that the wallet belonged to another woman, who is named on the paper and works at the center. Washington said she believes the other woman is involved in identity theft.

Washington is being held in St. Louis County jail. Bail was set at $25,000.

My identity was stolen this year, woman arrested. She used cards, forged checks, etc. She confessed, then lawyered up and PA advised she will likely be awarded time served in jail (4-5 months) toward her sentence, then be placed on 5 years probation. I'm ticced, she was wanted in 7-8 other municipalities of St Louis.

That hardly seems fair, in my opinion, Ann. I think about the amount of time and stress it takes for a victim to resolve all the issues caused by identity theft and it seems like it'd be worth more than 4 or 5 months in jail.
