A Wodonga woman wanted by police on an outstanding warrant has been charged with nearly 40 offences after being arrested in Springdale Heights.
Albury police officers were patrolling Kaitlers Road about 8am on Thursday when they allegedly saw Natasha Harper behind the wheel of a parked Volkswagen Golf.
Police allege Harper and a male passenger, Benjamin Matthew Kennedy, tried to avoid arrest when spotted by the police members.
"As police approached the vehicle, the occupants, including the woman and a male passenger, were apprehended after attempting to flee," NSW Police said in a statement on Friday.
"Checks confirmed the 32-year-old woman was wanted on an outstanding warrant and the passenger, a 35-year-old man, was also wanted on an outstanding warrant for traffic offences.
"Both were arrested and during a search, the woman was allegedly found in possession of more than 25 identification cards and documents, suspected of being stolen, as well as a small amount of white powder, which will undergo forensic analysis."
