Police: Woman gave false name to avoid active arrest warrant
PHILMONT, N.Y. – One Columbia County woman is facing a
number of felony charges after giving a false name to a Trooper, according to New York State Police.
Authorities say they have arrested Clarissa Bartles, 32,
following a criminal impersonation investigation.
According to NYS Police, Bartles was pulled over by Troopers
in December and issued an appearance ticket for a violation of Unlawful
Possession of Marijuana. Police say Bartles gave them false information about
her identity so the ticket was issued to another female.
On Tuesday, a female contacted State Police and told them
she was a victim of identity theft related to this case, say police.
Subsequently, an investigation began.
According to authorities, Bartles was located in Philmont
and taken into custody. Police say it was then revealed that the woman had
committed Criminal Impersonation in the 2nd Degree in order to hide
an active Arrest Warrant from authorities.
Bartles has been charged with four counts of Falsifying Business
Records in the 1st Degree, one count of Identity Theft in the 2nd
Degree, and one count of Criminal Impersonation. She was arraigned and remanded
to Columbia County Jail in lieu of $2,500 bash bail or $5,000 bond.
