Sonoma police arrested a Vallejo woman Tuesday on suspicion of purchasing hundreds of dollars worth of gift cards with fraudulent checks. Saundra Djafarzadeh, 38, also known as Parnian Clark, is suspected of passing the fraudulent checks she made at Wal-Mart, Best Buy and Safeway stores throughout the North Bay from Novato to Lake County, Sonoma police Sgt. Dave Thompson said. Djafarzadeh was identified as the suspect who passed four fictitious checks at the Sonoma Valley Safeway on two days over the past month, Thompson said. The fraudulent checks were made by using other individual’s names, addresses and bank account information, Thompson said. Djafarzadeh had several fraudulent checks, more than 30 gift cards and California identification cards in other people’s names when she was arrested, Thompson said.
Color printers with reams of blank-check stock, check-making documents and programs and fraudulent checks were found during a search of Djafarzadeh’s Vallejo home, Thompson said. Other law enforcement agencies are also investigating Djafarzadeh and additional charges may be filed against her, Thompson said. Sonoma police arrested her for commercial burglary and check fraud. She posted bail Wednesday morning and is scheduled to be arraigned Monday morning in Sonoma County Superior Court.
