ELK GROVE, Calif. — Megan “Monster” Hawkins, one of the inmates profiled in the Netflix docuseries “Jailbirds,” is back behind bars.
Hawkins was arrested Friday after police in Elk Grove, Calif., say they got a call about some suspicious behavior at a bank on Bruceville Road. Investigators said a woman was in the branch trying to open a checking and savings account with an identification card that wasn’t in her name.
A witness recognized her as Hawkins, police said.
Hawkins left before police arrived, officials said, but she was found nearby.
Police say Hawkins drove to the bank in a car that had been reported stolen. Inside the car was a number of credit cards in different people’s names, according to investigators.
Hawkins was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail, where “Jailbirds” was shot, on charges of possession of a stolen vehicle, unlawful use of personal information and probation violation.
