Deputies say they found a cache of personal identification cards and more during a traffic stop in April.
On Saturday, prosecutors charged Dustin Calvin, of Columbia, with trafficking in stolen identities, which is a felony, and drug possession in connection with a traffic stop that took place on April 7.
According to the probable cause statement, deputies pulled Calvin over around Snead Drive and Saint Charles Road. While searching her car, authorities found a coin purse that contained “54 different debit cards, driver’s licenses, EBT (electronic benefit transfer) cards, Social Security cards, insurance cards and other assorted gift cards.”
Calvin said the coin purse and cards inside belonged to her, according to court documents. The cards and documents originally belonged to 11 different people, deputies say.
Before driving to the Boone County Jail, Calvin told deputies she did not have any drugs or paraphernalia. According to court documents, however, authorities at the jail found a glass pipe on her person. Residue on the pipe tested positive for methamphetamine.
According to online court records, Calvin has been a subject of at least 10 criminal investigations since 2002 for crimes including driving without a license and misdemeanor drug possession.
She is in custody at the Boone County Jail on a $14,500 bond.
