“Detectives received a tip-off that a 51-year-old female from Claremont approached two individuals, a 33-year-old female and a 43-year-old male, to arrange someone to receive the Covid-19 vaccination on her behalf so she could obtain the vaccination certificate required for travelling purposes,” said Traut.
“A 43-year-old female who closely resembles the suspect was identified. She approached a Claremont retail pharmacy on November 17 2021 and received the vaccination on the government’s account.”
Traut said the investigation led to the arrest of the 51-year-old and the two who assisted to arrange a recipient for the vaccination.
“The suspect is being sought but we believe her arrest is imminent.”
