Police say they found stolen credit cards, checks, driver's licenses and a passport when they pulled over two women in a stolen rental vehicle.

On December 18, an Oklahoma City police officer saw an SUV with a Pennsylvania license plate in the parking lot of a convenience store at N.W. 39th Street and Meridian. The officer ran the plate, and discovered it was listed as stolen from a rental car company.

The officer stopped the vehicle after the driver pulled out of the parking lot. The officer said the driver, 29-year-old Jennifer Delancy, initially gave him a driver's license belonging to a woman in Florida. The officer later confirmed the Florida license belonged to the victim of an auto burglary, and that her purse, credit cards and license had been stolen.

Police asked Delancy where she'd gotten the SUV, and she claimed a man she met at a Blanchard casino loaned it to her so she could go to a pawn shop and sell something.

Police also questioned the passenger in the car, identified as 24-year-old Cherish Mitchell. When police searched her purse, they noticed she had two different driver's licenses, and neither belonged to her.

Officers discovered several stolen licenses and credit cards in the SUV, most of them taken during auto burglaries in the metro.

Police arrested Delancy on two counts of receiving and concealing stolen property. Mitchell was booked on possession of stolen credit cards, possession of forged or counterfeit documents, and three counts of receiving and concealing stolen property.
