Calaveras County sheriff's officials said the stop of a woman suspected of driving with a suspended driver's license yielded much more when a deputy found stolen credit card information, drug paraphernalia and burglary tools in her car.
According to a news release, a deputy stopped Amber Nicole McMillan, 28, of San Andreas at 11:35 a.m. Jan. 16 on Highway 49 in San Andreas.
McMillan, who is on probation in San Joaquin County, agreed to allow the deputy to search her and the car.
The deputy found a piece of paper containing credit card numbers, expiration dates and security codes. McMillan reportedly admitted that the information was stolen.
A search of her purse revealed more pieces of paper containing the names, dates of birth, addresses and additional credit card numbers for numerous people.
The deputy found a digital scale and a substance believed to be methamphetamine, as well as metal knuckles and a shaved vehicle key typically used to break into and steal vehicles.
McMillan was arrested and booked at the Calaveras County Jail on multiple charges.
Deputies are trying to locate the identity theft victims to warn them that their personal information has been compromised.
