DPS Trooper Arrests Identity Theft Suspects

A Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) trooper stopped and arrested two individuals Thursday after the discovery of 393 fraudulent pre-paid gift/debit cards.

At approximately 8:34 a.m., a DPS trooper stopped a 2015 Jeep Cherokee for a traffic violation on US 287 near Electra in Wichita County.  During the traffic stop, the trooper observed indicators that led him to believe that the occupants were engaged in illegal activities.  

A search of the vehicle revealed 140 pre-paid gift/debit cards valued at over $9000.  The trooper also discovered 253 pre-paid/debit cards which are believed to contain personal information of at least 50 identity theft victims. Approximately four grams of hashish was also found in the vehicle. 

The driver, Tarlaura Dansby, and the passenger, Gregory Hubbard, were both arrested and booked into the Wichita County jail.  Both Dansby and Hubbard were charged with money laundering, fraud use/possess identifying information and possession of a controlled substance.
