SALISBURY — A Kannapolis woman is in the Rowan County jail awaiting extradition to Virginia after she was arrested on a governor’s warrant Tuesday.
The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said Monica Hollis Brooker, of East 31st Street, Kannapolis, was arrested March 23 and charged with felony fugitive from justice. Authorities said Brooker was wanted on charges of felony forgery and felony identity theft in Virginia.
Brooker was given a $1,000 bond in March, which she made, and continued to live in the Rowan County area.
Deputies said the governor’s warrant was issued on July 31. It was served the same day.
Capt. John Sifford said the warrant did not indicate why the warrant was issued now.
A governor’s warrant is issued to permit the extradition of a suspect with warrants in another state.
Sifford said Brooker is in jail under no bond.
Virginia authorities will pick her up in Rowan County.
