Correction: Lacey Fowler is no longer an employee of Cuesta College. She resigned June 19, and her resignation was approved by the Cuesta College Board of Trustees on July 1, according to the college.
Lacey Fowler, the former Cuesta College employee on the run after skipping a court date related to a May 31 data breach at the college and other unrelated charges, is now suspected of cashing a fraudulent check at a Paso Robles Walmart and burglarizing a commercial vehicle this week.
Paso Robles Lt. Ty Lewis said Friday that Fowler, who has an active warrant out for her arrest, was successful in cashing a $1,094.14 check at the store.
He said the District Attorney’s Office, which has already consolidated charges of illegally accessing data, possession of methamphetamine and heroin for sale, being under the influence of drugs, violating a restraining order and battery against a spouse into one criminal case against Fowler, will now add the new charges to the list.
