A 30-year-old New Hampshire woman was arrested at the Holiday Inn Express in Braintree this past weekend after allegedly using other peoples' IDs and credit cards to register a room.
The woman – Heidi L. Holt, of Boscawen, NH – had credit cards belonging to New Hampshire and Brockton women and a driver's license from a New Jersey woman when she was confronted by police on Oct. 6, Deputy Chief Russell Jenkins said in a statement.
"The [New Hampshire] credit card owner called the hotel after learning that her credit card, which she had previously reported as stolen, was being used at the hotel," Jenkins said.
Holt had used the New Jersey woman's ID to register at the hotel. That woman reported her wallet stolen, Jenkins said.
"Holt claimed to be friends with both women, but officers knew this to be untrue," Jenkins said.
Officers later found the Brockton woman's credit cards in Holt's pocketbook, along with a small amount of heroin and prescription drugs.
She was charged with charged with multiple offenses, including identity theft, improper use of a credit card, forgery, passing a forged document, receiving a stolen credit card (three counts), possession of heroin and possession of a Class E drug (three counts), Jenkins said.
Correction: The name of the town where Holt is from is spelled Boscawen.
