Port Orchard resident wanted in crime spree

Tiffany Doll one of several charged in post office burglaries

PORT ORCHARD — Tiffany Dawn Doll, last known to reside on Harris Road Southeast in Port Orchard, is wanted on at least 18 warrants for her arrest, primarily for her participation in burglarizing post offices in Kitsap, Mason and Pierce counties.

Doll is being sought by law enforcement authorities in Kitsap County for six pending cases, including multiple counts of identity theft and burglary, stolen mail, forgery and auto theft. She has been known to have bragged to others about stealing people’s identity and money.

The suspect is also wanted in Pierce County for allegedly breaking into a residence and stealing items inside. Doll also is being sought for stealing a large safe from a home in Tacoma last year, police say.

Doll is the only member of the criminal ring who has not been apprehended. All of the other identified suspects in the post office theft ring, including Nathan Lindquist, Steven Kerr and Brandon Egeler, have been arrested. Egeler is out on $50,000 bail, the news outlet reported.

One of Doll’s co-defendants told authorities that the Port Orchard resident had also been staying at a home in Bremerton. Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound said it is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information on her whereabouts.

Detectives told Q13 Fox News that the 48-year-old woman has been on a two-year crime spree and even bragged to a co-defendant that she could teach him how to commit ID theft and claimed to have recently siphoned off $40,000 from a victim’s bank account.

Detectives told Q13 News that she helped case several post offices in the region and then split the profits from her theft spree with a co-defendant who used stolen bank cards to commit fraudulent transactions at Walgreens in Silverdale.

“She’s fully involved, we believe, in this organization,” U.S. Postal Inspector John Wiegand told the news outlet.

“She used other people’s IDs, identification documents, checks and credit cards to steal money and steal bank account information and commit other crimes with it, so this wasn’t just about burglarizing a post office, this was also about taking other people’s money, taking other people’s identities and using that to further their own ill-gotten gains.”

Doll is also wanted in Tacoma, where she and Shane Kelly Askins were charged with second-degree residential burglary and theft. They are accused of damaging a garage door and stealing a large safe from a home on South Sunset Drive on June 3, 2019.

Charging documents state that surveillance video showed the pair arriving at the home in a red truck, with Doll going to the back door and ringing the doorbell. After getting no response, she returned to the truck and both Askins and Doll then exited the truck and walked around the residence. A few minutes later, Q13 News reported, the video showed the garage door open, with Doll and Askins seen driving away with a large safe taken from the residence having been placed in the truck bed. Inside the safe were home videos that the owner considered to be “priceless.”

Doll isn’t a stranger to tangles with the law. She has a criminal history of 25 arrests and convictions, including driving with a suspended license, and theft and drug violations.

Postal inspectors say she could be in the Pierce or Kitsap county areas. Doll is 5-8 and weighs 155 pounds.
