Identity theft arrest leads to high speed chase

"Howard County [Maryland] police have charged four people from Florida in a widespread scheme that involved stealing credit-card information, financial records and personal information from as many as 100 victims in four states, authorities said.

On Aug. 10, police were called to the Best Western hotel in the 6700 block of Dorsey Road in Elkridge after a housekeeper found suspicious documents in a room’s trash can. When police tried to stop one of the room’s occupants as she drove near the hotel, she sped away and later collided with three Howard County police cars. Marie Arendas, 24, also tried to strike an officer with her car, police said.

The others arrested were identified as: Lamisha Loffett, 33, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; Jamie Frazier, 32, of Plantation, Fla.; and Wayne Curry, 35, also of Lauderhill."
