Wichita police are looking into the discovery of dozens of fake IDs that were found in a car after a traffic stop Wednesday afternoon.
Lieutenant Doug Nolte said a Sedgwick County sheriff's deputy stopped a car around 1:45 p.m. in the 4200 block of South Hydraulic. The deputy found the fake IDs and contacted Wichita police.
Nolte said it appeared the IDs were going to be used to set up false bank accounts and conduct financial transactions. He said there were some IDs that were taken in recent burglaries of cars and homes, and some property has been recovered that was taken in burglaries in Sedgwick and Harvey counties.
The 35-year-old driver of the car was arrested on an outstanding warrant, but no arrests have been made on the identity theft case at this time.
Nolte said it's believed that a 33-year-old man may also be involved in the case, but it's still an open investigation.
