WHITESTOWN, Ind. -- Whitestown police say two women are behind bars after allegedly stealing thousands of dollars’ worth of high-end designer goods from stores around Chicago.
The take down began as a routine traffic stop on I-65 in Whitestown, near Zionsville. Authorities say Pachae Moore and Tanieka Toliver were both inside the vehicle and later arrested on suspicion of committing financial fraud.
According to authorities, the two had been using false and stolen driver’s licenses to open store credit cards and would then purchase merchandise using other peoples' stolen identities.
In all, police recovered around $3,500 worth of stolen goods from inside the car.
Police say both women had outstanding warrants as well as histories of fraud.
At this point, authorities aren't sure how many victims may have been defrauded. However, given their histories and outstanding warrants, neither suspect will be able to bond out of jail for the time being.
