Woman Arrested on Identity Theft Charges

Posted April 7, 2008

— Detectives arrested a woman suspected of stealing a social security number and running up a tax bill with the Internal Revenue Service.

Beda Ramirez-Ramirez, 39, of 129 S. Tenth Ave. A-2, Siler City, faces one felony charge of financial identity theft.

Magda Robles contacted the Chatham County Sheriff's Office after a call from the IRS, investigators said. Officials had told Robles that she owed the federal government more than $4,000 in income taxes.

Detective Chris Perry conducted a week-long investigation and found probable cause that Ramirez-Ramirez had illegally used Robles' social security number.

Ramirez-Ramirez was released on a written promise to appear in court in Pittsboro on April 14.

    "Ramirez-Ramirez was released on a written promise to appear in court in Pittsboro on April 14."

    You have GOT to be KIDDING ME!!!!!!

    I guess the words "WRITTEN PROMISE" are actually supposed to mean something to her. She committed a Federal Offense......WRITTEN PROMISE....c'mon now, really.

    I agree with you Nursebv8....why are we releasing crimals after they commit crimes? Also we know she is illigal so she could take off and get a new name and new social before her court date is up.

    She stole federal property and was released on a promise to appear? Somehow this sounds like all the problems with the probation dept. and judges.
