Woman arrested using false license in Dennis
- A motor vehicle crash led to an arrest for uttering a false license in Dennis.  Police responded to 15 Love Ln. South Dennis about 3:20 Thursday concerning a report from the Harwich Police of a motor vehicle accident at that location.

Upon arrival Patrolman Cleve Daniels spoke with officers from Harwich Police, who had initially been summoned to an address on Main St. Extension in Harwich, which is adjacent to Love Ln., concerning a female knocking on doors in the area. After an initial investigation by Harwich officers it was determined that the incident had occurred in Dennis. As a result of his investigation Ptl. Daniels learned that the female operator, who identified herself as a 25 year old Orleans resident, had driven west on Love Ln. and had entered the driveway of a residence located at the end of the road. She then drove into the rear yard and struck a retaining wall in the rear of the residence.

After conducting field sobriety tests Ptl. Daniels placed the driver under arrest for Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol and Motor Vehicle Trespass. While processing the individual at the police station Ptlmn. Daniels became suspicious as to her true identity. As a result Ptl. Daniels transmitted her fingerprints to the FBI's Identification
Division for verification. Within fifteen minutes Ptlmn. Daniels received a reply from the FBI and when confronted with this and other information he had gathered, the female confirmed her true identity. The arrestee is identified as 32-year old Dulcy Blomberg of Brewster.
Ms. Blomberg was additionally charged with Uttering a False License and Giving a False Name
to a Police Officer. Ms. Blomberg also had four (4) outstanding warrants for her arrest, 2 from
the Quincy District Court for Fraudulent Use of a Credit Card and Possession of Heroin, one from the Roxbury District Court charging her with Aggravated Assault and another from the Orleans District Court charging her with Possession of Marijuana. Ms. Blomberg was held for her arraignment in Orleans District Court on Thursday morning.

Ptl. Daniels additionally contacted the owner of the license advising her of the incident and
precautions she may take (i.e. contacting credit reporting agencies to ascertain if any
unauthorized inquiries were made on her credit history, changing her license number from her
social security number to a Registry assigned number etc...) to protect herself from identity fraud associated with this individual's use of her license.

Dennis Police say the The United States Postal Service has several helpful tips on their website on preventing and dealing with identity theft . Posted on 1/11 at 7:00 PM.
