FAIRFIELD — Solano County Sheriff’s Office detectives made an arrest Thursday in a fraud case they have been investigating since July, according to a press release from the department.
Sheriff’s detectives received two fraud cases earlier this year from patrol deputies who took the original reports. Leads recently developed and led detectives to a woman who lives in Vallejo.
Detectives obtained the current address for the woman and found that she currently lived with a man who was on post-release supervision. Detectives went to the home on the 700 block of Springs Road and arrested Rachel Marie Vasquez, 32, according to the release.
The detectives searched Vasquez’s home and found a large amount of paperwork and numerous other items allegedly associated with identity theft and fraud. Detectives have thus far identified more than 60 potential victims in the case and are in the process of contacting each to verify whether they are victims of identity theft.
Vasquez was booked into the Solano County Jail on a host of allegations including 61 counts of unlawful use of identifying information of another person; 24 counts of forgery; four counts of unauthorized use of personal identifying information of another person to obtain credit, goods, services, or real property; and one count of petty theft, according to the release.
Her bail was set at $140,000. Her first court appearance is scheduled at 1:30 p.m. Nov. 4 in the Fairfield courthouse.
