Woman wanted for theft and burglary in Clark County arrested

By , Columbian staff writer

A woman wanted for burglary and theft in Clark County was arrested in Lacey on Friday evening.

Sarah Salo allegedly entered a school, stealing credit cards and identification that belonged to the school’s teachers. She was arrested by Lacey Police Department officers.

Salo had outstanding warrants for similar crimes in Clark County.

Aware of her outstanding warrants in Clark County, Lacey police contacted the Clark County Sheriff’s Office to confirm the warrants and to determine if she was wanted for other crimes.

Salo’s outstanding warrants included burglary in the second degree and theft in the second degree from Clark County and identity theft from Multnomah County.

The police department wasn’t able to book Salo on the charges she faced in Lacey or Clark County because of jail regulations in the area.

Clark County Deputy G. Marek was in Olympia on unrelated business Friday and was able to take custody of her. Marek brought her to Clark County, where she will face charges of criminal impersonation in the first degree, theft in the first degree, possession of another’s identity and forgery.
