BAKER CITY, Ore. (AP) — Oregon State Police say they found 59 fake credit cards when they stopped a Las Vegas man accused of speeding on Interstate 84 near Baker City.

The Oregonian reports that police say Isney Echavarria-Perez was stopped Wednesday and booked into jail for investigation of aggravated identity theft, five counts of identity theft and five counts of criminal possession of a forged Instrument.

Investigators found the credit cards had the magnetic strip on the back of the card re-coded with stolen account information from victims.

Troopers, Portland police, Las Vegas police and the U.S. Secret Service continue to investigate.
