Update: The warrant for Julia Lewis has been recalled, and she is no longer wanted by police.
Honolulu police and CrimeStoppers were previously searching for Julia Lewis, a woman accused of identity theft.
“On September 11, 2015, Lewis went into the Kalihi branch of First Hawaiian Bank and attempted to cash a check. She provided a Hawaii state driver’s license and a fingerprint to the teller. The teller checked on the check and found that the signatures did not match and went to confirm with her manager. The manager attempted to contact the owner check, but was unsuccessful at the time. When the teller returned to her window Lewis had left,” Kim Buffett, Honolulu CrimeStoppers, said.
Authorities found her two months later and arrested Lewis for forgery, identity theft, and unauthorized possession of someone’s confidential personal information.
A $50,000 warrant was issued for not complying with conditions of supervised release. It has since been recalled.
“She has two prior convictions and known to frequent the Honolulu and Windward area,” Buffett said.
