The Santa Maria Police Department is seeking the public’s help in locating a woman wanted for using another person’s identity to avoid prosecution.

On Oct. 17 after serving a narcotics search warrant at a home on the 300 block of West Harding Avenue, police made contact with 30-year-old Kady Feliz. She was arrested and charged with drug-related offenses.

Police learned after releasing the information about her arrest to the media that she had misrepresented her identification.

She told police that her name was Lindsey Winters. The real Winters started receiving phone calls and messages from friends and relatives about the arrest. She went to the Police Department and alerted them to the misidentification.
