A team of South Bay authorities said they arrested four women suspected of stealing the identities of at least 100 victims in a ring headquartered at a Days Inn in San Jose.
Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Amy Cornell said Wednesday that two of the women arrested Monday at the motel on Monterey and Senter roads were on parole for theft-related crimes — including robbery and being a parolee at large.
Another woman was on probation, and the fourth was a parolee at large. Agents recovered several items of stolen mail, credit cards, counterfeit mailbox keys and methamphetamine from the motel room used by the suspects.
