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.
