South Pasadena police arrested a Bakersfield couple on suspicion of identity theft. Employees of a Von’s Supermarket contacted police to report shoplifting. When police arrived, they found a couple in a rental truck filled with packages, mail, credit cards and retail items. The mail and packages did not belong to either person.
In addition to the items located in the truck, police also found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. They also discovered that the truck had previously been reported stolen. They booked the couple on charges of suspicion of residential burglary, grand theft, conspiracy and identity theft.
