Three people were arrested in January 2019 at a traffic stop, when police discovered the vehicle they were driving had apparently been stolen. It was allegedly rented with stolen identity documents. Forged and stolen identity documents were discovered during the traffic stop along with the stolen property.

The three suspects face 130 charges between them but have yet to have their day in court.
