— U.S. marshals arrested a woman Thursday who was wanted on at least 48 criminal charges ranging from writing worthless checks to obtaining property by false pretenses and identity theft.

Noelle Martin Secrest, 37, also known as Noelle Martin Moore, racked up the charges over a period of five years in Wake, Durham and Guilford counties.

Secrest moved around from Cary to Morrisville to Raleigh. Her most recent known address is 3214 Brassfield Road in Greensboro.

She was being held in the Wake County jail on $1,170,000 bond.

Secrest was listed as an absconder from probation by the state Department of Correction. Her probation stemmed from 2006 convictions on two felony counts each of forgery, uttering a forged or instrument and obtaining property by false coins or tokens.

    Wonder if she's ever worked a day in her life? Thinking she needs a career in license plate making or picking up trash beside the road. Hope they sentence her to plenty of community service even when she gets out. There are plenty of animal shelters that need kennels cleaned or landfills that could use a little sprucing up! Put her big fat rump to work and make her pay restitution to those she has taken advantage of!

    Why is Cary, NC listed as the place the story took place? When it said she left Cary and moved to many other places? I would think the location mentioned should be the location where she was arrested.

    shortz - so how do you like that beacon of peace and stability Oakland? Or do you live in East San Jose?

    Aren't we all thankful that I-40 runs west and I-95 runs north and south? NC has its fair share of problems, but to compare it to a state that is bankrupt and comprised of Sodom and Gomorrah is a joke. One last tidbit, you don't see any of us on a California TV station website.

    I hope they don't let her write a check for her bond:)

    Yet they let those who abuse children out with $5,000 bond; go figure.

    God bless.

    I would like more info on exactly what she has done. Story was pretty vague. Guess she was just trying to "keep up with the Jone's" in Cary.
