A Twin Falls police officer made a strange discovery when the person he pulled over offered a driver's license -- from his wife's stolen purse.

The Times-News reports that Twin Falls Police Sgt. Ryan Howe on Monday pulled over a vehicle he believed was connected to his wife's stolen credit card -- and was proven right.

Howe's wife reported someone broke into her car and made off with her purse, wallet, credit cards, driver's license, phone charger and more on Sept. 26. Throughout the course of the investigation, they identified two suspects who often drove a Pontiac G6.

Howe pulled over the car on Monday for excessive tint on the windows and found that one of the suspects removed his license from a wallet identical to the one that was stolen.
