Authorities have arrested a Waco woman, who has been on the run since October of last year.

Paige Burch, 33, was arrested in Fort Worth early Thursday morning. Burch has been on Waco PD’s most wanted fugitive list for the past few months.

According to Sergeant Patrick Swanton, Waco PD Spokesman, Burch used an 80-year-old man’s identification to get credit cards. The victim made a report with police regarding the situation. Burch reportedly passed several checks that she stole from the victim, using those checks to open up various credit and debit cards.

Burch is the wife of one of the family members of the victim.

A warrant for her arrest was issued in November 2012.

Waco Police Department and the US Marshals of the North Texas Fugitive Task Force worked together to locate and arrest Burch. Burch was using several names, such as Paige Stewart and Paige Kenas.

Burch is charged with a parole violation and Felony Credit Card Abuse.
