'Repeat credit card thief' arrested on Kauai

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 07:18 p.m. HST, Jan 16, 2014

Kauai police said a woman who once tried to pass herself off as the half-sister of a supermodel is in custody for felony credit card fraud.

Police describe Stome Aerison, 49, of Colorado Springs, as a "repeat credit card thief."

Police arrested Aerison when she allegedly tried to check out of the Kauai Marriott Resort with a stolen credit card. Officers recovered other stolen credit cards from her belongings, police said.

Prosecutors charged Aerison with both felony and misdemeanor counts of credit card theft and identity theft.

She is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail.

Police said Aerison was born Charles J. Daugherty, but legally changed her name to Storme Shannon Aerison.

Police said she has used several alias, including James Daugherty, Shannon Daugherty and Teri Anderson.

Police said Aerison has also used the name Kimber Ireland in an attempt to pass herself off as the half-sister of former supermodel Kathy Ireland.

"I am pleased that our officers were able to detain this individual before she could continue her history of criminal activity here on Kauai," said Assistant Chief of the Patrol Services Bureau Ale Quibilan.

A 49 woman who has only prison to look forward for possibly the rest of her life. Oh! Yes, she may be released after a short spell, but what else is in store for her??? Suspect more of the same kind of encounter with law enforcement.

This thief will be out in no time. That is why we need to make changes to correct the problem. A first offense should have resulted in a more stringent parole after actual time in prison (probation is not enough). The thief should have been required to get therapy and required to have proper employment to pay for this therapy and release to the community. Anything outside of that is simply unacceptable. Further, a second offense should automatically yield a longer stay in prison, probably five to ten years. Identity theft should automatically yield a ten year offense on first offense. Typically, these criminals receive a very short time and we wonder why it we have such a problem with identity theft.
