(CNN) -- Prosecutors have charged a woman who admitted throwing a corrosive liquid on her own face with three counts of theft from people or companies acting as Good Samaritans, Clark County, Washington, officials said Monday.
A warrant has been issued for her arrest, the Clark County prosecutors' office said.
Bethany Storro "did obtain control over" at least $750 each from Michael Kite, Anytime Fitness and Safeway during the time she was promoting the story that she was attacked on August 30 by an African-American woman with an athletic build and slicked-back hair pulled into a pony tail near a Vancouver, Washington, coffee shop, according to prosecutors.
Throw the book at her. This was a truly disgusting act, that spurred racism, and also caused a black woman, who looked like the description the woman gave, to go into hiding. It also created a little racial arguing here at DP. I do not have the words at this time to be able to describe how I feel about something like this. Just "disgusting", which doesn't even begin to go far enough.
