Florida Woman Commits ID Theft To Pay For Plastic Surgery: Cops

A Florida woman accused of stealing someone's identity to pay for thousands of dollars in plastic surgery is on the run.

Lakeland Police said they are looking for 20-year-old Nyaira Thomas for allegedly stealing a woman's identity and personal information to pay for breast implants, butt lift and lip injection.

Detectives said Thomas opened a credit application at Watson Clinic in Lakeland using the identity of a woman living in Illinois. Police said the suspect had a fraudulent Illinois ID with her picture on it.

Thomas had two procedures done on separate occasions. On Feb. 20, Thomas underwent surgery for breast implants, liposuction of her flanks, and the fat from the flanks were placed in her buttocks, according to a police report. Detectives said the suspect also received one CC of Juvederm in her lips on Feb. 27.

The total cost for the procedures is $11,025.

Detectives said they located a Lake Wales address off of a credit application report and identified Thomas as the culprit. Police are currently looking for the suspect.

She faces a slew of charges including grand theft, forgery and criminal use of personal ID.

Anyone with information on Thomas' whereabouts is urged to call the Lakeland Police Department at 863-834-8993.
