Man charged with identity theft against Miss Washingtonon May 4, 2012 @ 4:55 am (Updated: 6:12 am - 5/4/12 )
They were taken along with her sash, crown and gowns when a car was stolen in February from outside her home in Edgewood. When the car was found the property was missing.
The cards were used at stores around Tacoma. The prosecutor's office says investigators tracked them to the 32-year-old suspect, Jayson Broderson-Matthai.
The crown and sash have not been located, and Miss Washington has asked her fans on Facebook to help keep their eyes open for the one-of-a-kind items.
"It's important to help us get these items back," says Ed Troyer with the Pierce County Sheriff's Office. "It will lead us to other people who are involved in this theft and car prowl ring."
Troyer says Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward in the case.
