Man Killed in Washington State Stand-off Wanted in Sacramento for Real Estate Fraud

The Sacramento Bee reported that a local man who was killed in a showdown with Washington State police was the subject of a 2004 warrant from the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office.

The warrant from the DA’s office charged Sacramento residents Nina and Rick Marlowe of Sacramento with filing a false or forged instrument, theft by false pretenses and identity theft. Although the warrant had been active for eight years, it wasn’t until very recently that the investigation led authorities to a home in Hoquiam, Washington. Authorities arrested a woman but the man showed fraudulent identification. When police returned to arrest the man, whom they believed to be Rick Marlow, he shot Police Sgt. Jeff Salstrom.

The warrant was issued after investigators believe the Marlowe’s forged the name of a woman who co-owned a piece of property (title fraud) so that they could sell it (real estate fraud).
