Identity theft investigation uncovers stash of personal documents at Yucca Valley home

Look at the documents this guy had in his possession!! Is he a Russian identity thief? I don't think so. A common criminal? I think so. But once he sells this stuff on black market – watch out!! This is local folks – Yucca Valley. From the San Bernardino Sun:

Sheriff’s deputies recovered documents with personal identifying information belonging to numerous victims after serving a search warrant Thursday morning at a Yucca Valley home as part of an identity theft investigation.

The home, in the 7000 block of Mohawk Trail, was searched after deputies received information that it may have a connection to identity theft, according to a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department news release.

Found inside the home were social security cards, birth certificates, death certificates, tax returns and other personal items, the release stated.

Trenton Bush, 38, of Yucca Valley, was interviewed by deputies, and the case will be forwarded to the District Attorney’s Office for review and possible prosecution.
