Man charged with using Miss Washington’s credit



TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — The Pierce County prosecutor filed identity theft charges Thursday against a man accused of using bank cards stolen from Miss Washington, Brittney Henry.

They were taken along with her sash, crown and gowns when a car was stolen in February from outside her home in Edgewood. When the car was found the property was missing.

The cards were used at stores around Tacoma. The prosecutor’s office says investigators tracked them to the 32-year-old suspect, Jayson Broderson-Matthai, who was scheduled for arraignment Thursday afternoon.

The crown and sash have not been located, and Miss Washington has asked her fans on Facebook to help keep their eyes open for the one-of-a-kind items.
