Johnson City police arrested a woman Sunday after she used someone else’s identity to avoid traffic tickets in March, the department said in a news release.

Lacey Perry, 29, was charged with felony identity theft, felony forgery and driving on a suspended license.

Police said that on March 25, Perry was stopped for failing to operate her headlights during nighttime hours. She was issued citations for headlight dusk to dawn and financial responsibility violations. 

On May 24, the other person came to police headquarters once she learned she had received a traffic citation. Police determined Perry had used the victim’s information and a warrant was obtained for Perry’s arrest.

On Sunday, officers said they were called to the Baymont Inn, 2606 N. Roan St., to investigate a trespassing report. They found Perry and served her with the warrant on the earlier charges. She was held in the Washington County Detention Center under $21,000 bond and arraigned Monday in Sessions Court.
