ID theft suspect had pellet gun made to look like a ‘semiautomatic’ pistol, police say

Glendale police arrested a man Sunday evening said to be responsible for several identity-theft incidents.

Sometime around 7:20 p.m., the Glendale Police Department was called to the 1800 block of Ransom Road regarding a suspicious car parked in a cul-de-sac. Department spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot said officers contacted the vehicle’s 32-year-old driver, Gabriel Freeman, and an unidentified passenger.

She said officers noticed the smell of marijuana coming from inside the car.

While conducting a search of the vehicle, officers found a pellet gun in the glove box made to look like a black semiautomatic pistol, Lightfoot said. Police also found two glass methamphetamine pipes and a box full of checks written to other people as well as bank account numbers with their corresponding pins, according to Lightfoot.
