A Hoboken woman who pleaded guilty to charges related to vote-by-mail fraud in connection to the 2013 mayoral contest was arrested for vandalizing parked cars last week, police said.
Lizaida Camis, 57, of Hoboken, was charged with nine counts of criminal mischief and disorderly conduct, according to Police Det. Lt. Danilo Cabrera.
At approximately 8:44 a.m. on March 6th, Officers Jonathan Lyons and Frank Francolino were dispatched to a parking lot in the area of 300 Harrison St. They responded on a reported vandalism to auto.
They met up with the victim and she reported scratch marks all around her vehicle and two flat front tires. Information was taken for a report and around 9:20 a.m., Lyons and Francolino were dispatched a second time to the same location for the same type of report.
The female victim also had scratches around her vehicle and one flat tire. While on scene, three more victims approached the officers to report their vehicles were also vandalized, officials said.
From there, a sixth victim approached the officers and reported her ground floor apartment door was also vandalized. Officers were then directed by a Hoboken Housing Authority employee to a second parking lot in the area of 300 Marshall Dr.
Officers discovered three more vehicles vandalized in that location. Sgt. David Olivera arrived on scene and assisted with the investigation. Through their investigation, they identified Lizaida Camis as the actor in the vandalisms.
Camis was located and arrested at 10:58 a.m. and charged accordingly. Her charges went on a summons and she was released with a court date, police said.
In November 2018, she pleaded guilty to promoting a vote-by-mail fraud scheme during the 2013 mayoral contest and her name came up during Frank Raia’s trial on VBM fraud, though she did not end up testifying of playing any sort of pivotal role in the case.
