TULSA, Oklahoma - Deputies arrested a man for identity theft after finding boxes of personal checks, drivers licenses, government documents and drug paraphernalia in his home Monday evening.
Deputies said a tip led them to 33-year-old Wisam Hibri's home in in the 7600 block of South Urbana. Deputies said they found counterfeit checks and driver's licenses as well as computer equipment used in the manufacture of the items.
