Two-year Kitsap crime fugitive Doll apprehended in Bremerton

Postal office thief, last living in Port Orchard, was arrested Wednesday

PORT ORCHARD — A tip by a television crime show viewer led to the Wednesday arrest in Bremerton of a two-year fugitive from the law, Tiffany Doll, who last lived in Port Orchard. She was booked into Kitsap County Jail after her arrest on a long list of warrants.

Law enforcement agencies, including Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office, U.S. postal inspectors, members of the West Sound Narcotics Enforcement Team and Gig Harbor Police, apprehended Doll after acting on a tip from a viewer of Q13’s Crime Stoppers program. Her escape from the law after allegedly breaking into Kitsap County postal offices, committing multiple counts of identity theft and burglary, stealing mail, and committing forgery and auto theft, was reported on the program.

Doll, 48, reportedly has six pending cases in Kitsap County Superior Court. She also was wanted in Pierce County for burglarizing and stealing from a home. Police said the former fugitive also stole a large safe from a Tacoma home last year.

The suspect was last known to have resided on Harris Road Southeast in Port Orchard. She had at least 18 outstanding warrants for her arrest in three counties, including Mason.

Doll is believed to have been the only member of a criminal ring who hadn’t been caught by law enforcement agencies.

Detectives told Q13 Fox News that she had 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.

U.S. Postal Inspector John Wiegand told the news agency that Doll used other people’s IDs and identification documents, checks and credit cards to steal money and bank account information, then commit other crimes with their use.

“This was also about taking other people’s money, taking other people’s identities and using that to further their own ill-gotten gains,” Wiegand said.

Doll has a criminal history of 25 arrests and convictions, including driving with a suspended license, and other theft and drug violations.

Her date for court arraignment wasn’t immediately known Wednesday night.
