Woman arrested after bragging on police Facebook page about getting away with crime

MOSES LAKE, Wash. — A 19-year-old woman who bragged on a police department’s Facebook page about getting away with a crime has been arrested.

Officers with the Moses Lake Police Department in Washington say the woman, who they identify as Kayla Irizzary, was contacted as a passenger during a traffic stop. She was released from the scene with no legal reason for officers to detain her, police said.

Later, a search warrant on the vehicle revealed a purse containing the woman's identification and a pistol, which Irizzary is not eligible to possess as "she is a prolific felon," police said.

Police couldn’t immediately re-locate her for an arrest.

Then, police say Irizzary went on the Moses Lake Police Department’s Facebook page and bragged about “getting away.”

Police said they set up a meeting with her using social media. She showed up but took off on foot when she realized it was a setup.

Police said she was captured and booked into Grant County Jail on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm and possession of heroin.

Both charges were from the original incident.
