SUN VALLEY, NV (KOLO) - Washoe County Sheriff’s Office detectives have arrested a Sun Valley woman on more than a dozen charges related to an ongoing credit card fraud investigation.

21-year-old Kayla Rose Sechrengost was booked into the Washoe County jail on 15 charges, including unlawful use of another person’s identification, unlawful use of another person’s credit card, burglary, and embezzlement.

The charges are based on incidents that occurred between July 2015 and April 2019. Detectives say the victim in this investigation entrusted Sechrengost to assist with finances while the victim was undergoing medical treatment.

Sechrengost is accused of violating that trust by using the victim’s financial information and credit cards to make nearly $10,000 in purchases without the victim’s consent.

The victim began to notice substantial discrepancies with her financial statements and notified the Sheriff’s Office.

Anyone with information that can assist this investigation is asked to contact the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office Detective Division at (775) 328-3320 or Secret Witness at (775) 322-4900. Refer to case #WC19-2261.
