A Philadelphia woman faces a charge of giving false identification to Lansford police.
Tiffany Bright, 29, of 907 Watkins St., was charged after an incident on East Patterson Street in April. She was arraigned before District judge casimir Kosciolek and jailed in Schuylkill County prison (she also faces charges in that county) under $1,500 bail.
According to an affidavit of probable cause filed by Lansford Officer Jason Helmer, here's what happened: at 8:10 p.m. April 4, Helmer was called to 860 E. Patterson St. for a report of unwanted persons on the property.
Upon making contact with the actors in question and identifying himself as a police officer, Helmer asked for identification. One of the people said she didn't have her driver's license, but spelled her name as "Tiffany Bright" and gave her birth date as Oct. 27, 1983.
After Bright was released, Helmer learned from Carbon County communications staff that they had been unable to locate any record of Bright. After conducting a universal search using a different spelling of the name, Helmer learned that the woman;'s true name is Tiffany Bright and that she is actually 30. He also learned that Bright has an active warrant out on her from the Pottsville police department for altering a prescription.
