PORT ALLEN, La. - A routine traffic stop by Louisiana State Police landed three Floridians in jail after they consented to a vehicle search that turned up numerous stolen credit cards, Social Security cards and driver's licenses.
Officers made the stop Wednesday on Interstate 10 west of Port Allen.
Trooper Jared Sandifer says officers became suspicious and asked for permission to search the vehicle.
Inside, troopers found the hidden credit cards and other identification cards, at least five of which had been reported stolen in vehicle burglaries in Sebastian, Fla.
Sandifer says Jessica L. Oldaker, of Orlando, Fla.; Lamarcus V. Bryant, of Sunrise, Fla.; and Ezekiel K. Christie, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., were each booked on counts of illegal possession of stolen items.
It was unclear whether those arrested have attorneys.
