— 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.
