CARLSBAD–The Carlsbad Police Department is seeking additional victims of theft from fitness center locker rooms.
On September 19, Carlsbad officers arrested 32- year-old Mayra Vasquez of Carlsbad in Encinitas and booked her into the Vista Detention Facility for multiple counts of identity theft and burglary.
The series began in December of 2018 and investigators have reason to believe there are well over 20 cases related to the Carlsbad series and at this time, at least 30 countywide cases. Evidence indicates there are still numerous cases countywide and potentially additional victims.
The suspects would enter a fitness center and remove property from the locker room. At times, vehicle keys were taken, and the vehicle was entered outside the fitness center. Wallets and other property were taken, and identities were stolen.
Investigators are asking victims who have had property stolen from a fitness center locker room to contact their local police department to report the crime and have it potentially added to this series.
Once victims have filed a report with their respective agencies, authorities are requesting that they contact Carlsbad Police Department at (760) 931-2154 and provide the department with the agency name and agency case number so that all cases can be consolidated.
