Spokane business owner accused of stealing his daughter's identity

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. -

Detectives are investigating Jamie Pendleton, the controversial owner of the Daiquiri Factory, who's accused of identity theft of his own daughter.

In a search warrant filed Tuesday, we learned that Pendleton's daughter, who lives in Texas, filed a report with the Fort Worth Police Department in June after she discovered her father had used her identity illegally here in Spokane. Pendleton's daughter, who has not had contact with her dad since 2008, learned he had used her name in an application for a liquor license. In May, Pendleton announced he was trying to re-open his business, the Daiquiri Factory. Spokane Police objected to the bar getting a liquor license, saying in the three months it had been open before, they had been called more than 60 times for reports of things like fights and assaults. They also brought up the fact that Pendleton had recently been convicted of grand theft in North Idaho for using s stolen credit card at an ATM.

The Daiquiri Factory did open back up this summer but without a liquor license and unable to sell alcohol. KHQ's Patrick Erickson went to the bar hoping to speak with Pendleton but nearby business owners said it hasn't been open for a few weeks. Detectives are now working with the Washington State Liquor Cannabis Board in this investigation, asking for additional search warrants to find out if her identity has been used anywhere else.
