(Press Release) Clovis Police Tuesday night arrested 31-year-old Richard Plumb of Fresno. Officers arrested him for impersonating a man, identity theft and drugs. Multiple counts of possession of stolen property, a gang enhancement, along with four warrants issued by the California Department of Corrections.
As well as Plumb, 29-year-old Matthew Snodgrass of Clovis and 25-year-old Danielle Blevins, a transient were arrested. Blevins was detained in the lobby of the Homewood Suites to which she ran to get away. She was arrested for committing a felony while out on bail for a felony, possession of stolen property and identity theft. Snodgrass was arrested for drug possession and receiving stolen property. He is no longer in jail as part of an overcrowding release.
All three suspects were staying at a hotel on Gettysburg Avenue east of Clovis Avenue. Their collective crimes included credit card theft, possession of identity theft tools and possession of methamphetamine, marijuana, cocaine and heroin. A hotel employee at the Hampton Inn and Suites called officers yesterday afternoon to report suspicious activity in a room that three people had rented for eight nights on a credit card that was either fake or duplicated, which was later confirmed through the credit card company.
Clovis Police detectives are investigating ties that these people may have with others in the area, who may be committing similar crimes.
