Petaluma woman accused in burglary, ID theft case

Petaluma police on Wednesday arrested a 36-year-old woman suspected of fraudulent use of a credit card.

Felecia Humphrey of Petaluma opened up a credit card in another person's name and charged approximately $1,500 at stores and took out cash advances in Marin and Sonoma counties, police said.

The suspected fraudulent activity occurred in April, when police said Humphrey visited at least nine stores and restaurants and used the illegally obtained credit card.

She was identified making the purchases and attempting to get cash at ATMs, police said. They did not say how she was identified or whether she knew the alleged victim, who was not identified.

She was arrested on suspicion of burglary and identity theft at the Petaluma Police Department and taken to Sonoma County Jail, where her bail was set at $20,000.
