Detectives in Pierce and King counties are searching for a mother-daughter duo who have felony warrants for their arrest.
“Right now we’re looking for Lora McKay. She also goes by Lora Contor,” says Normandy Park Police Det. Jeremy Hedrick. “Basically, her hustle is to wait outside daycares and as parents run their kids inside she breaks into the car and steals the purse and then is off using bank cards immediately.”
He says Lora has about 50 aliases she's using to fly under the radar and is hitting in Renton, Kent, Tukwila and Pierce County. She's often with her daughter, Sonya, who has a felony warrant for rendering criminal assistance and driving with a suspended license in Pierce County.
Det. Hedrick believes if they can find one, they'll find the other. “I want them really bad at this point. The problem with her is that every day she’s not in custody, she’s out doing this exact same crime over and over and we’re seeing it throughout King County and Pierce County. She’s definitely wanted by multiple agencies at this point, so I personally want her in custody very much.”
If you can tell police where to find them, call Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 222-TIPS. You never have to give your name and there is a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to their arrests.
