Woman arrested on multiple theft counts

From staff reports
A 21-year-old woman was arrested on 21 counts of theft-related activity during an investigation into vehicle prowling in north Spokane. Jorden L. Mayo was booked into the Spokane County jail on 13 counts of identity theft, four counts of possession of stolen property and four counts of money laundering. On the evening of Oct. 21, Spokane police received a report of vehicle prowling in the 1600 block of East Wellesley Avenue. A purse containing debit and credit cards was taken, a news release from the police said. The cards were then used by the suspect to make unauthorized purchases. Shortly before 10 p.m. Monday, Sgt. Brian Eckersley executed a search warrant on Mayo’s home and recovered the credit cards along with other property, believed to be stolen. Investigators believe there may be up to 20 additional theft victims and are contacting people identified through the investigation to determine if their property was stolen.
