A Beloit woman is charged with giving police the name of someone else—one police included earlier in a news release about a sweep of drug arrests.
Raven S. Lyons, 20, of 957 Burton St., was charged Wednesday in Walworth County Court with two counts of identity theft by avoidance, obstructing an officer and possession of marijuana.
After the Walworth County Sheriff’s Office announced last month the arrest of 16 people related to various drug crimes, one woman—later identified as Lyons—gave police the name Savannah Alexander, according to the criminal complaint.
On Feb. 25, the real Alexander said a friend sent her a screenshot of Lyons’ mug photo with Alexander’s name, the complaint states. Alexander said she lost her Wisconsin ID card a few months ago at a friend’s house, where she believes Lyons must have taken it.
