CHELAN — A Moses Lake couple face forgery and burglary charges after police said they tried to return stolen merchandise to a store using false tribal IDs.
Jody Wayne Isaacs, 36, and Stacy Marie Isaacs, 39, showed identification cards claiming membership in the Comanche and Choctaw nations respectively while trying to return a tent and a blender at the Chelan Walmart Aug. 26, according to Chelan County sheriff’s deputies.
Both IDs showed signs of alteration, with names or photos pasted in.
Store employees reported the incident and gave the couple’s license number. When deputies stopped their vehicle, Jody Isaacs again provided a Comanche ID under another name, but the Oklahoma-based tribe confirmed the document was false, according to court files.
Jody Isaacs was to be arraigned today in Chelan County Superior Court on charges of forgery, second-degree burglary, driving on a suspended license and giving false information to police. Stacy Isaacs faces charges of forgery, third-degree theft and second-degree burglary; she was also found to have warrants for her arrest pending in Oklahoma.
