A traffic stop has led to four arrests in Madera County; all of them are suspects in an alleged identity theft operation with victims across the country. Three men and one woman were taken into custody early Monday morning after a deputy pulled their car over in Madera County.

The deputy found a large pile of mail, including more than 30 bank checks with the names of people in Clovis, Fresno, and as far away as Tennessee and Virginia.

That traffic stop also revealed that one of the passengers was wanted by Fresno police and another was on parole for burglary.
