The Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office arrested a 34-year-old woman this week on suspicion of burglarizing a vehicle in Santa Cruz in December, a deputy said.

The suspect, Genevra Migliore, was driving a Honda CRV she allegedly stole that collided with another vehicle in the 900 block of Mission Street in Santa Cruz on Dec. 28, sheriff's Deputy Ryan Kennedy said.

Migliore used a false identity to present herself to the other person involved in the collision and gave information from a California driver's license from the stolen vehicle, according to Kennedy.

The other party suspected Migliore was using a stolen driver's license and took a picture of her hand holding the identification card, he said.

Deputies were able to link Migliore with a vehicle burglary that happened that same day in the 1400 block of state Highway 1 around 3:30 p.m., Kennedy said.

Criminalists with the sheriff's office were able to use the picture taken by the other party involved in the collision to analyze Migliore's fingerprints connecting her to both crimes, he said.

She was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of felony burglary and identity theft.
