SOUTH PASADENA (CBSLA.com) — Authorities in Southern California say they recovered 200 pieces of mail they believe to be stolen after conducting a traffic stop.
About 2:30 a.m. Saturday, South Pasadena police say they observed a BMW they allege was speeding on the 110 Freeway and conducted a traffic stop.
After stopping the vehicle, police say they found out the driver had an outstanding warrant for grand theft auto.
What’s more, police say they recovered about 200 pieces of mail they say weren’t addressed to the driver.
“Officers also found dozens of blank credit cards, a credit card embossing machine, multiple mailbox keys for multi-unit apartment complexes, several stolen driver’s licenses and other tools commonly used to commit thefts,” police said in a news release.
Police identified the suspect as Marisa Rae Delgado of Highland Park. She was subsequently arrested.
