Police officers on patrol on the 100 block of S. Lamer St. Sunday morning arrested two people on several charges after a license plate check on their vehicle confirmed the white 2014 Ford Ranger pickup they were using was stolen. Officers noticed the male suspect as he walked up to a residence on the block at 8:15 a.m. Saturday, January 25, while the female remained in the vehicle, so they stopped to talk with the man.
After determining the vehicle was stolen, officers arrested both the male and female, Kevin Aide, age 21, and Pamela Toftee, age 28, both of Victorville. A search of the vehicle turned up bolt cutters, a card-skimming device, cell phones, three laptops and a television, plus suspected methamphetamine. A further check of the truck revealed a large amount of personal identifying information including social security cards, birth certificates and checks, according to Sgt. Darin Ryburn of the Burbank Police Department.
Aide and Toftee were arrested for the stolen vehicle, possession of methamphetamine, identity theft and possession of burglary tools. Charges may be pending for possession of stolen property. Both are due in court on Tuesday and their bail is set at $50,000 each.
