By BREAKING NEWS BLOG

Kern County Sheriff's detectives arrested 39-year-old Deborah Nichols for grand theft and identity theft Wednesday.

Nichols tricked the victim into believing she owed Nichols more than $9,000 for medical bills, a sheriff's department news release said. Nichols then used the victim's identifying information to open credit card accounts in the victim's name and defrauded her of $14,000 before being caught.
