By Jimmy Lee, Director of Public Affairs, Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff
In the early morning hours of Tuesday, March 20, 2018, a Deputy Sheriff patrolling Discovery Bay conducted a traffic enforcement stop on the 4000 block of Regatta Drive. The Deputy contacted the female driver and determined she had a $220,000 arrest warrant for identity theft out of Alameda County.
A subsequent search of her vehicle yielded what appeared to be stolen mail, altered checks, numerous suspected stolen gift cards, a stolen laptop, and some official documents that included tax forms and IRS vouchers.
The suspect was booked into the Martinez Detention Facility on forgery and receiving stolen property charges, as well as the arrest warrant. She is identified as 41-year-old Sarah Potter of Hayward. She is being held in lieu of $260,000 bail.
