LAKEWOOD - This week, 9NEWS reporter Will Ripley broke the story of a restaurant server who was confronted with the woman accused of stealing her identity.
Brianna Priddy's wallet was stolen on Feb. 13 during a night out with friends.
On Feb. 25, a customer came to the Applebee's on the 10600 block of West Colfax in Lakewood where Priddy works as a server.
"This girl hands me my ID as a fake ID," Priddy said. "But I didn't say anything. I handed it back to her and said sure I'll be right back with your margarita. Went straight to the phone. Called the cops."
Lakewood police spokesman Steve Davis cannot release the name of the woman they arrested because the investigation is ongoing.
"Dumb criminal. That's the first one that comes to mind," Davis said. "We found some narcotics in this woman's possession so she's in quite a bit of hot water."
