Wrongful Death Penngrove, CA Woman Killed

Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office investigators Friday evening said they have located a car belonging to a Penngrove woman who was found dead in her home Thursday morning but no arrests have been made.

Investigators have been searching for red, two-door Lexus since shortly after Olga Mary Dinelli, 84, was found dead in a chair in her home in the 900 block of Rose Avenue around 11:50 a.m. on Thursday.

She was found after a caller reported seeing a person in the home and blood inside, Sgt. Cecile Focha said.

The house was in complete disarray, leading investigators to suspect a homicide occurred, and Dinelli’s 1995 Lexus SC400 was missing from the property, Focha said.

Dinelli lived in the house with her brother Larry for the past several decades, Focha said. Her brother was not home when the homicide occurred and he has been informed of his sister’s death. He is not considered a suspect or person of interest.

The case remains an active and open investigation and no one is in custody associated with the vehicle or crime.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the investigation’s tip line at (707) 565-2185. Callers may remain anonymous.

Identity Theft Man Posed As Mail Carrier to Steal Identities

The discovery of a cloned Colorado license plate led El Paso County Sheriff’s Office deputies to a man they say used a postal worker’s uniform to steal mail.

Jesse D. Williams was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of unlawful possession with intent, two counts of identity theft and first-degree criminal trespass.

http://liarcatchers.com/identity_theft_investigation.html

The Sheriff’s Office says Williams created a fictitious license plate by filing an old one down and using stencils to copy a valid plate number onto the metal. The fake plate, copied from a 2014 black Dodge Challenger, was put on a stolen 2014 gray Dodge Challenger.

The car was reported stolen from an Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Englewood.

Deputies got a tip about the stolen vehicle and found it in the parking lot of the Village Inn on Garden of the Gods Road. Williams allegedly gave a false name and date of birth and showed a fake ID when he was arrested, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

The stolen car contained evidence of making the fake license plates as well as a postal worker’s uniform and evidence he had been involved with identity theft cases in the Quail Lake Loop area, the Sheriff’s Office said. The Crime Reduction Unit alleges he posed as a postal employee to steal mail and people’s identities.

Williams is being held without bond. The unit is working with the U.S. Postal Service, the Colorado Springs Police Department and Denver law enforcement to find possible additional victims.

Fraud Investigation Two Prescott, AZ Men Arrested for Credit Card Fraud

The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office said on Friday that two men are in custody after they stole credit cards and made hundreds of dollars in charges.

A Sheriff’s Office statement said Dominic Croslin, 22, and Mykel Stevens, 23, entered an unlocked truck in southwest Prescott and stole a wallet containing credit cards, cash and a Medicare ID on Jan. 27. From there, deputies said the two used the victim’s cards and spent close to $800 at Walmart and a local restaurant.

http://liarcatchers.com/identity_theft_investigation.html

After requesting help to find the thieves, Yavapai County deputies were contacted by officers from the Yavapai Tribal Police Department, who recognized the pair from surveillance photos and suspect information from a similar case, the sheriff’s statement said.

Deputies said they used the information on Tuesday to identify and arrest Croslin, who admitted knowing about the burglary and the purchases, before giving up Stevens as his accomplice, according to the statement.

Stevens gave himself up to his parole officer Friday afternoon and was arrested shortly afterwards, a spokesman for the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office said.

Croslin and Stevens were booked into jail on suspicion of theft, forgery, identity theft, fraudulent use of a credit card and burglary.
