Los Angeles: The Los Angeles
Police Department Commercial Crimes Division Detectives have taken
a prolific identity theft suspect into custody.

In December, 2017, Veteran Financial Crimes Detective Woods
investigated a complex case of identity theft involving multiple
incidents, suspects, and victims. Upon completing the
investigation, Woods identified 24-year-old Suppatra Tansuvit, as
the suspect. Tansuvit was subsequently charged with multiple felony
counts of ID Theft with priors by the District Attorney’s
Office.

Tansuvit, who had previously been released on bail, failed to show
up in court for her own jury trial and a felony bench warrant was
issued. The DA’s office subsequently filed additional charges and
warrants, thus making the suspect a wanted fugitive.

Commercial Crimes Division Detectives Due Diligence Unit was tasked
with locating Tansuvit. In July, 2019, Tansuvit entered a high-end
sports car driven by her boyfriend, and a high-speed vehicle
pursuit ensued. Tansuvit’s boyfriend, Robert Carrasquillo, was
ultimately arrested for felony evading. Unfortunately, Tansuvit was
able to evade arrest by fleeing on foot from the moving vehicle
when the patrol units, in the interests of public safety, went into
tracking mode. After his arrest, Carasquillo bailed out, and failed
to appear for court. He is currently wanted.

Due Diligence Unit resumed their surveillance and arrested Tansuvit
outside of her residence on August 14, 2019 near the 1000 block of
Wilshire Boulevard. A warrant search of the suspect’s home took
place and detectives discovered a large quantity of evidence,
including a credit card mill, and ID Theft making equipment.

At the time of the suspect’s arrest, she had nearly $5,000 in cash
on her person.

Tansuvit was subsequently booked for additional ID Theft charges,
as well as her felony warrants. Due to her propensity for skipping
bail and flight from prosecution, she was placed on a probation
hold.
