Woman arrested after stealing someone else’s identity to buy car in Victorville – VVNG.com

VICTORVILLE, California (VVNG.com) – Authorities arrested a 52-year-old woman after stealing another woman’s identity to buy a vehicle in Victorville.

On January 11, 2022, the deputies of the Victorville Police Department responded to a call for a service related to identity theft in block 15000 Dos Palmas Road.

Sheriff’s officials said the victim reported that someone used her information to buy a vehicle at a car dealership in Victorville.

“Through investigative measures, detectives determined that the suspect used the victim’s personal data to obtain a car loan online, which was later used to buy a vehicle at the Victorville Motor Show,” the statement said.

Detectives used a thumbprint taken at the time the suspect signed for the vehicle. The fingerprint was analyzed and paired with Kelly Holmes, a resident of Orange, California, and detectives issued an arrest warrant for her.

On April 22, 2022, detectives were informed that Holmes had been arrested and detained at the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Detectives caught Holmes and transported her to the High Desert Detention Center where she was charged with three felonies: forgery, grand theft, and obtaining credit using someone else’s identification.

Anyone with information about this investigation is requested to contact the Victorville Police Department at (760) 241-2911 or the Sheriff’s Dispatch at (760) 956-5001.
