Tuolumne CA Oct 28 2016 A Stockton resident was arrested over the weekend for a series of fraud and identity theft incidents that occurred at Black Oak Casino Resort in Tuolumne.
The woman attempted to obtain a line of credit using a fake California driver’s license and fake blank check in a San Joaquin County resident’s name, a Tuolumne County Sheriff’s news release said.
Black Oak Casino security notified the Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office, who responded to the scene.
Prior to the deputy’s arrival, the woman was transported to Sonora Regional Medical Center for medical attention.
“ We have no medical information. She was already transported when deputy arrived,” said Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Andrea Benson, who wasn’t sure why the woman required medical attention.
Tuolumne County Sheriff’s logs from that evening note a call for an ambulance was made for a female for a ground-level fall on the third-floor of the parking structure of the Black Oak Casino.
Sheriff’s Office logs also note three 911 hangup calls originating from Black Oak Casino that evening at 8:14 p.m., 8:41 p.m. and 9:19 p.m.
During the ensuing investigation, Black Oak Security discovered that the woman had committed identity fraud against a Yolo County resident earlier in the month at the casino for “thousands of dollars,” the news release said.
The investigating deputy located the Yolo County victim, who “provided key information.”
Amanda Lynn Meays, 33, was booked Sunday on charges of burglary, forgery, unlawful use of identifying information, possession of a fake driver’s license, possession of a fake check and misdemeanor charges providing false identification to a peace officer after an arrest at Sonora Regional Medical Center.
Her bail is set at $15,000.
The investigation is ongoing, Benson said.
