Woman Arrested at St. George Car Dealership with Fake ID 

A woman was arrested March 28 at a St. George car dealership after workers with the establishment informed police of some strange behavior coming from the woman. 

It was later discovered the woman was using a fake ID claiming she was from Georgia. In reality, Robin Sue Legowski, 56, was hired by a group that transports vehicles to California which is her true place of residence. Legowski told police she was to be paid $3,000 for her services. 

The woman will be appearing in court for an initial hearing today while in custody with a $7,000 bail.

Fun fact about Stockton Myers, the writer of Sunrise Stories. 

Stockton has mentioned his love for the arts community of Southern Utah and is constantly finding ways to support said community. That’s why he’s very excited for the St. George Arts Festival today and tomorrow. Stockton highly suggests that everyone should go support these talented individuals, and maybe even buy an art piece or two if possible. 

Happy Friday!
