PORT ORCHARD — Initial charges were filed Thursday against suspect Tiffany Dawn Doll in Kitsap County Superior Court, who now faces second-degree burglary and identity theft charges for her role in a series of felonies stretching across three counties in Western Washington over a two-year period.
More charges are expected to be filed later in Kitsap and Pierce counties.
Doll, 48, was on the run for two years until she was arrested in Bremerton by a multi-agency team of law enforcement officers that included Kitsap County Sheriff’s deputies, U.S. postal inspectors and members of the West Sound Narcotics Enforcement Team. Her highly publicized alleged role in a crime spree that included breaking into area post offices and a residence was the subject of a profile on Q13’s television program “Washington’s Most Wanted.”
As a result of the program, a viewer tip to Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound led to her arrest in Bremerton.
The suspect, whose last known address was on Harris Court in Port Orchard, initially had bail set at $250,000 for the burglary charges. Superior Court Judge Sally Olsen, however, deemed that amount too high and reduced it to $50,000.
Doll has yet to face charges in Pierce County for her alleged role in a Tacoma residential burglary and theft last year. Authorities said the suspect stole a large safe from a home on South Sunset Drive in Tacoma.
Q13 Fox News said Gig Harbor police have identified the woman as having attempted to steal cash from the bank account of a woman from Ruston, in Pierce County. Doll is suspected of using the victim’s name and information to create fake identification.
