GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska state troopers arrested four men and recovered hundreds of stolen items after stopping their sport utility vehicle along Interstate 80.

Troopers started looking for the SUV Wednesday after it was reported that several men were trying to use potentially stolen gift cards to buy new gift cards in several communities. The vehicle was spotted and stopped near Grand Island, and troopers soon learned that it was a rental reported stolen by the rental company.

Troopers say they found video game consoles, dozens of fraudulent gift and credit cards and a small amount of marijuana. Troopers valued the stolen items at $50,000.

The men were arrested on suspicion of criminal possession of a forgery device and of other crimes. Online court records don’t show that they’ve been formally charged.
