Moses Lake Police News Release:
“What social media giveth, social media taketh away: Woman who trolled MLPD back in custody
You may recall that last week, we shared a story about Kayla Irizzary, a 19 year old woman who was contacted as a passenger on a traffic stop. As our officers had no legal reason to detain her, she was released from the scene. A subsequent search warrant on the vehicle revealed a purse that contained her identification and a pistol, which Irizzary is not eligible to possess as she is a prolific felon. Officers were not able to immediately re-locate her and arrest her.
Irizzary got on MLPD’s Facebook page and was bragging about getting away, which we believe is the number one killer of criminal karma that there is….
This morning about 2:30 am, officers using covert investigative techniques 😉 set up a meeting with Irizzary, ironically enough using social media. Irizzary showed up, and when she realized she had been set up, made a run for it on foot.
She was caught in about four steps and booked into the Grant County Jail on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of heroin. Both charges were from the original incident.
