WALLINGFORD — Two adults and three juveniles from New York face charges after police said they were found with dozens of stolen credit cards and cocaine during a traffic stop Tuesday night.
Jun Sun, 28, and Xinhe Wang, 20, both of Flushing, New York, were charged with third-degree larceny, 20 counts each of credit card theft, 19 counts each of identity theft, possession of narcotics, and numerous conspiracy charges. Wang was also charged with criminal impersonation.
The three juveniles were each charged with third-degree larceny, 20 counts each of credit card theft, 19 counts each of identity theft, possession of narcotics and numerous conspiracy charges. One juvenile was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
Sun and Wang’s bond was set at $100,000. The juveniles were released to relatives.
Officer Andrew Stolfi stopped a car on North Colony Road (Route 5), near Kohls about about 7 p.m. after the driver, later identified as Wang, didn’t stop for a red light.
Wang and the other four people in the car were found with cocaine and dozens of stolen or fraudulently created credit cards, Lt. Samuel Soukup said.
“The individuals were caught due to the proactive and vigilant actions of Officer Andrew Stolfi, who was diligently patrolling his assigned area of responsibility,” Soukup said. “The true scope of these crimes would not have been determined without the assistance of Detective Sean Houlihan.”
The juveniles are not being identified due to their age.
