Police stopped a reported stolen car, but it was what they found in the backseat that interested them more.

Court records show that on October 13, Glendale police stopped a car reported stolen in the area of 67th Avenue and Bethany Home Road. In the back seat, they found a woman who was just released from prison with multiple ID's and a device used to make fake credit cards. 

Police report that when they searched the car, they found 24-year-old Christy Marie Francisco in the back seat. Francisco was released from Perryville prison this past May for identity theft. Police say in the back seat with Francisco were identification cards from at least three victims.

Police also allegedly found an ID scanner and a "credit card writer used to make cloned or forged credit cards."

Francisco is now facing charges of aggravated identity theft and possession a forgery device.
