A Watsontown woman wanted in connection with stolen identities and fraudulent credit cards surrendered herself to Lancaster-based state police on Thursday.
Emily Fitzgerald, 30, has been charged with 40 felony counts of various crimes including forgery, identity theft, access device fraud and theft by deception.
Fitzgerald is accused of stealing both her parents' personal information. According to reports, she opened nine fraudulent credit cards in their names and tried to open two more. She allegedly charged more than $42,000 on the cards.
Last week, Watsontown police alerted the media that Fitzgerald had fled their grasp. She was believed to have gone to the Lancaster area with her boyfriend, Douglas Humphries, 33, and their 2-year-old son.
According to reports, Humphries also has warrants out for his arrest. However, police did not specify what charges he is facing.
According to reports, the pair told police they turned themselves in because "there was too much publicity due to media coverage about them."
Fitzgerald was transported by state police back to Northumberland County, where she was arraigned by video Thursday evening before District Judge Hugh Jones.
She was committed to Northumberland County Prison in lieu of $100,000 bail.
