MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) – Madison police charged two women with trafficking in stolen identities and manufacturing a controlled substance after motel employees alerted police to multiple social security cards they discovered stuffed in a book.
On Monday afternoon, police responded to a call at the Motel 6 on Madison Blvd. While cleaning a recently vacated room, employees discovered a book with many social security cards and other identifying information of people other than the recent tenant.
Police discovered that the tenant had only switched rooms and had not left the motel. Michelle Shannon, 30, and Kimberly Champion, 33, were both arrested and charged with trafficking in stolen identities. When their room was searched, paraphernalia for cooking methamphetamine was discovered. Both were charged with manufacturing a controlled substance.
Shannon is being held on $255,000 bond and Champion is being held on $256,000 bond. Both women were released earlier this year from the Alabama Department of Corrections where they were both sentenced on identity theft and forgery charges.
