INDEPENDENCE, Mo. – Independence Police are holding a man they say stole identities on both sides of the state line.

Officers say victims have been located in Overland Park and Stilwell Kansas, as well as Kansas City, Odessa and Lee’s Summit in Missouri.
Coleman is charged with three felony counts of trafficking in stolen identities.
