The Hawai’i Police Department has charged 41-year-old Mitzi G.P. McArthur with various offenses in relation to financial crimes in the Hilo area.

Authorities say the woman, who has no permanent address, was arrested at a bank on the 200 block of Kamehameha Avenue at 12:15 p.m. Friday.

McArthur was arrested on suspicion of identity theft after she attempted to procure a loan under someone else’s identity. She also reportedly damaged a door to the bank as she attempted to flee from officers.

Detectives charged McArthur with attempted second-degree identity theft, second-degree forgery, and fourth-degree criminal property damage.

McArthur’s bail was set at $4,250 and she will appear in court on her initial appearance Monday afternoon.
