Three arrested for ID theft at Hotel Avante

 

Three Bay Area residents were arrested last week after police found they had checked into Hotel Avante on El Camino Real using a credit card that was reported stolen out of another city.

A neighboring law enforcement agency told Mountain View police that a woman's purse had been stolen, and that her credit card had been used by the three suspects to check in to a room at the hotel around 12:50 p.m. on Jan. 5, according to police spokeswoman Katie Nelson.

When officers arrived at the hotel, one of the employees told police that the trio of suspects was attempting to leave the hotel, Nelson said. The officers spotted the suspects in the parking lot, and reportedly found them in possession of the stolen credit card as well as other stolen property from neighboring cities.

The suspects, a 30-year-old San Francisco man, a 24-year-old Burlingame man and a 18-year-old transient woman, were all arrested on stolen identification charges, possession of stolen property, conspiracy to commit a crime and possession of a controlled substance.
