An Elizabethtown woman stopped for a traffic violation ended up with felony charges June 16.
Whiteville Police reported that Sasha Willis, 24, of Elizabethtown, was jailed under $5,500 secured bond on charges of identity theft, speeding and driving while license revoked. She was also wanted for failure to appear in Cumberland County district court.
Officer J. Rawls was on patrol when he clocked Willis traveling at 58 in a 45 mile per hour zone in May. During that stop, Willis allegedly produced a driver’s license for Wyteshia Shanee Rogers, and was released with a speeding ticket.
On June 16, Rawls was attempting to serve warrants from driving while license revoked and identity theft on Willis, and he recognized her from the prior speeding ticket, when she allegedly produced Rogers’ license. Willis was taken into custody on the additional charges at that time.
