IREDELL COUNTY, N.C. — Multiple people were taken in custody Tuesday after a traffic stop on Sept. 25 where officials reportedly found nearly 200 cellphones.
Four people were arrested last week on Interstate 77 in Iredell County, North Carolina State Troopers said, according to WSOC-TV. During the traffic stop, troopers said they found 152 cellphones.
Piter Valenzuela, 29; Kimberlin Castellanos, 23; Yexon Castellanos, 28; and Yesica Castellanos, 30; were arrested, according to WSOC. Each of them were charged with possession of stolen property. Valenzuela was also charged with marijuana possession.
Investigators believe that at least 20 of the cellphones found were stolen from the Lost Lands Music Festival last month in Ohio, WSOC reported.
State troopers in Licking County Sheriff’s Office are trying to determine if the other cellphones were stolen at the same festival.
