A 29-year-old Alhambra man on probation for identity theft was behind bars again Thursday after being arrested in Glendale for allegedly possessing an unregistered firearm and dozens of credit cards and driver’s licenses in various names.
Joshua Findley’s vehicle was pulled over about 9 a.m. Tuesday in the area of Alameda Avenue and Glenoaks Boulevard, where he was allegedly driving a vehicle with expired registration, according to Sgt. Christian Hauptmann of the Glendale Police Department.
Findley told the officer that he was on probation for identity theft, which the officer confirmed through a records check, Hauptmann said.
Officers searched the vehicle and located an unspecified but “large” amount of cash, a loaded unregistered firearm, methamphetamine, a methamphetamine pipe, about 40 credit cards in various names, as well as gift cards and driver’s licenses in other people’s names, according to Hauptmann.
He was arrested and booked on suspicion of robbery, identity theft and being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm, Hauptmann said. He was being held on $35,000 bail, according to sheriff’s department records.
