PHOENIX (AP) — Authorities say a Phoenix couple is facing felony charges in Cottonwood after allegedly being found with multiple stolen credit cards.

Cottonwood police say 28-year-old James Thomas McCord and 29-year-old Mary Amanda Garner are jailed on suspicion of mail theft, identity theft, vehicle theft, vehicle burglary and drug possession.

Police say McCord had numerous credit cards belonging to other people in his wallet.

Police got a search warrant for the couple's motel room and reported finding mail from Phoenix, Sedona and Verde Valley plus methamphetamine, marijuana, drug paraphernalia and evidence allegedly linking them to a recent rash of vehicle burglaries in Cottonwood.

The couple also were in possession of a pickup truck reported stolen in Tempe.
