Police: false documents used for vehicle purchase

(KAIR)--The alleged use of false financial documents to purchase a vehicle, from an Atchison dealership, lands a Topeka woman in jail.

That's according to a release from Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson, who says 33-year Lesley Parkhurst was arrested Friday, by Topeka Police, and taken into custody on an Atchison County District Court warrant charging her with felony theft, identity theft, four counts of forgery, and two counts of making false information.

Wilson explains, in the release, that the “charges are related to a police investigation involving the purchase of a 2021 Buick Encore vehicle from Lewis Chevrolet in Atchison on May 23,” adding that “Parkhurst had provided fraudulent information to purchase the vehicle that included identity theft of a victim who did not know [her].”

Following her Friday arrest, Parkhurst was booked into the Shawnee County Jail.
