WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

Three people were arrested early Wednesday morning after officers saw them attempting to gain access to unlocked cars, according to WFPD officials.

Around 2 a.m. officers were patrolling the area of Rhea Road and Gossett Drive when they saw a vehicle facing westbound in the eastbound lane of the 2900 block of Gossett Drive in the Faith Village area. 

According to WFPD, officers watched a man exit the vehicle's right passenger side and begin checking door handles on parked cars. When he was done he got back into the vehicle and it took off westbound towards Rhea Road.

Officers initiated a traffic stop at the intersection of Gossett Drive and Rhea Road. The driver was identified as Nianicole Spence, 18, the right rear passenger was Angel Medina, 20, and the front right passenger was Taylor Butler, 17.

All were detained. Stolen credit cards were found in the front passenger floorboard, according to police. A purse with a stolen passport was found in the backseat, according to police.

Marijuana was also found inside the vehicle during the probable cause search. Two of the victims involved told police their vehicles were broken into and the items the officers found were inside their vehicles that were burglarized. 

All three suspects admitted to taking part in the vehicle burglaries. They were booked into the Wichita Co. Jail and charged with two counts of Burglary of a Vehicle and Fraudulent Use or Possession of Identifying Information. 

Butler claimed the marijuana was hers and was charged with possession as well.
