Two Arrested for Identity Theft

On July 7 at about 6 p.m., officers assigned to Glendale Police Dept.’s Special Enforcement Detail (SED) conducted a traffic stop in the 400 block of East Broadway. Assisting units arrived and officers spoke with the driver, 39-year-old Davida Parks of Los Angeles, and passenger, 26-year-old Adam Russell (who initially provided officers with false identification) of Buena Park. Officers observed a methamphetamine pipe in plain view and a vehicle search produced credit and identification cards belonging to other individuals, counterfeit money and two bindles of methamphetamine. 

Parks and Russell were both arrested and booked for identity theft and possessing a controlled substance. Russell was also arrested for providing a false name and identification to officers.
