Arrested: Altus police believe woman involved in identity theft

ALTUS, Okla._Altus police arrested a woman they believe is connected to an identity theft operation.

Christie Fields, 36, was arrested shortly before 3:00 a.m. Sunday during a traffic stop. Fields, who was a passenger in the car, gave police a fake name and was arrested after she was properly identified. During the arrest, Fields was able to break free from the officers and started a short foot chase. She was caught and taken to the Jackson County Jail where she faces charges of resisting arrest. She’s also being held on a warrant out of Kiowa County.

Police found mail, checks and credit and debit cards belonging to other people in the car. They believe Fields is connected to a man arrested Saturday, October 24, for identity theft. Investigators will submit any additional charges to the Jackson County District Attorney’s Office in the ongoing fraud investigation.
