BISMARCK — Three people were arrested Friday with dozens of stolen credit and debit cards, checkbooks, banking account numbers and Social Security cards.

Christina Lee Meyers, 31, and 36-year-old Brandon Allen Christian, both of Wisconsin, and 40-year-old Gerald Jermaine Adderley were arrested and each charged with 30 felony counts of theft of property and one misdemeanor count each of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and unlawful possession of a controlled substance.

A Burleigh County sheriff's deputy stopped a Dodge Caravan traveling eastbound on Interstate 94 just outside of Bismarck for license plate violations, according to the affidavit filed in the case.

The deputy identified the driver as Meyers, who, upon questioning, told him the vehicle was a rental from Florida. She also appeared nervous when asked about her travel plans, telling the deputy that she had been visiting friends in Montana.

The front seat passenger, who was later identified at Christian, also appeared "nervous and fidgety."

Both Meyers and Christian have warrants out of Wisconsin, Florida and Colorado, according to jail records. One of Meyers' warrants was for fraud, and Christian had two warrants for burglary and motor vehicle theft, according to the affidavit.

Adderley said he was just riding with Christian and Meyers on the way to Montana.

The deputy searched the suspects and found about $10,000 in cash on Christian and Meyers.

Property belonging to 32 different people, including 46 credit and debit cards, five checkbooks, four banking account number cards, eight Social Security cards and about 30 driver's licenses, were found inside the vehicle.

The cards' owners range from Alabama to Alaska, Washington, D.C., to Idaho, Missouri to Minnesota, according to the affidavit.

The deputy also found 3 grams of marijuana and residue throughout the vehicle.

All three suspects were booked into the Burleigh-Morton Detention Center. Each are held on a $100,000 bond.
