Homecare Worker with a History of Arrests for Identity Theft is Back in Jail
SAN RAFAEL — A homecare worker is in custody on suspicion of committing identity thefts, among other recent crimes. However, her arrest this week isn’t her first arrest for identity thefts.
Marin County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested 40-year-old Danielle C. Mowers on August 28 at her residence in San Pablo. Inside her apartment, authorities found hundreds of pieces of mail belonging to residents of Marin County.
U.S. Postal Service inspectors assisted in this investigation, and dozens of potential victims were notified by authorities. This may have then resulted in compromised personal identity information.
The Sheriff’s Office launched the investigation after a vehicle burglary last month in Stinson Beach. Investigators determined that information stolen from inside the vehicle was used in a fraudulent transaction online.
Mowers works as a homecare worker and delivery driver. Authorities soon identified her as a suspect. However, deputies waited to contact her until she was free on bail from another recent arrest in San Francisco.
Presently, Mowers remains in custody at Marin County Jail. She faces a long list of felony and misdemeanor charges at her arraignment on August 31.
Among other nefarious activities, Mowers is accused of using other persons’ identities to pass fictitious checks and obtain credit. Her charges include identity theft, forgery, fraud, theft, and possession of stolen property.
Mowers is no stranger to law enforcement. She has previous arrests, several times, for identity theft, and petty theft in Alameda County. Mowers also has an insurance fraud conviction.
