On September 2, 2022, the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office conducted a traffic stop on Glenview Dr., Archdale. During the investigation, a female passenger provided an initial false name, but the deputy knew that not to be the subject. She was issued a citation for Resisting a Public Officer.
On September 12, 2022, it was discovered that the female had given a second false name during that encounter and had been using both false identities for some time. She has been correctly identified as Shari Lynn Emmerth. Charges were sought for Emmerth for Felony Identity Theft and Misdemeanor Resisting Public Officer.
On September 26, 2022, Emmerth was located, arrested and transported to the Randolph County Detention Center where the magistrate served the outstanding warrant and her outstanding orders for arrest out of Randolph County and Guilford County for failure to appear. She was given a $2,000 secured bond on the new charges and a total of $12,500 for the outstanding orders. A first appearance was set for September 27, 2022, in Randolph County District Court.
