Suspected porch pirates arrested in Cedar City with hundreds of IDs, credit cards
CEDAR CITY, Utah — Police say they caught two porch pirates in Cedar City who had hundreds of IDs and credit cards with them under a number of different names.
The FBI is now involved as there may be victims in other states. Cedar City Police say the accused thieves, Lance Mann and Ashley Huddy, were arrested in a room at the Cedar City La Quinta Inn. On Facebook, the department shared a photo showing a table full of IDs, credit cards, and even a machine to make more.
Officers say the pair are not originally from Utah but may have been stealing packages around the region.
Hotel managers say they initially called the police because they could smell drugs coming from that room and other guests complained about the occupants.
