PARADISE VALLEY, AZ — A woman was arrested for using a fake credit card to pay a $4,000 Paradise Valley hotel bill.

Paradise Valley police report that on October 2, officers responded to Mountain Shadows Resort, where 41-year-old Nayaja Oleana Lewis allegedly used a fraudulent credit card to pay her $4,000 hotel bill.

Court records show that Lewis was a guest at the hotel for six days. During a search of Lewis' hotel room, police reportedly found multiple credit cards with her name on them, and a notebook containing private information from numerous people.

Investigators also allegedly found a printer and check paper in the room.

Police say a few days later Lewis called the hotel asking if her son could come by and get her belongings. On October 10, police followed him as he left the hotel and went to Chaparral Park near Camelback and Hayden roads to meet Lewis, who was then arrested.

Court records show that Lewis is being held without bond since she was already on pre-trial release on other charges of credit card fraud. If that case, Lewis allegedly used fake credit cards to buy a car, rent a storage facility, and pay court fines.
