Twice this year, the woman depicted in this video walked into the Home Improvement Center in Santa Barbara, CA and allegedly committed check forgery and identity theft.

On May 27, 2018 the Santa Barbara Police Department, via multiple social media platforms, requested the public’s help in identifying the suspect. The “Catch a Thief” post, complete with video and pictures, was viewed more than twenty thousand times.

On June 3, 2018, thanks to our partners in the news media and our social media audience the subject was identified as Deanna Lynne Ramirez, age 55, of Goleta. A $50,000.00 felony warrant for the crimes of forgery, identity theft, burglary, and abuse of an elder or dependent adult was issued for her arrest.

On June 11, 2018, because of the public’s help, Ramirez was arrested by San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s Office for the felony warrant.

OMG, I beg that this video was not produced by SBPD. What trash. It is like a bad version of really bad Hollywood movies about the police state future.

The opera voices at the end reminded me of Ozzy’s diary of a madman. They should have used that instead.
