Daily Post Staff Writer

A Redwood City resident who found out someone was using her credit card for a motel room in Belmont called police, leading to the arrest of four alleged identity thieves.

On Thursday (Jan. 4) around 12:45 p.m., the woman called Belmont police after she received a fraud alert from her bank, saying her credit card was being used at the Motel 6 at 1101 Shoreway Road, Capt. Pat Halleran said.

Officers went to the motel and found five people, hundreds of pieces of stolen mail, several credit cards and a gun in the room that had been rented with the woman’s credit card, Halleran said. Four of the five were arrested, while the fifth person, a 35-year-old from Bay Point, was interviewed and released.

Nicole Boyer, 36, of Missouri, was booked into jail on suspicion of identity theft, burglary and fraudulent use of a credit card.

Jennifer Felix, 25, of Concord, was booked on suspicion of theft, possession of burglary tools and possession of a controlled substance.

Jordan Anderson, 29, of Concord, was booked on an arrest warrant for drug-related charges.

Tyler Goforth, 35, of Antioch, was booked into jail on multiple arrest warrants for theft, burglary, identity theft and drug-related charges.
