CORAL SPRINGS, FL – When Coral Springs police made a routine traffic stop last week on State Road 7, they found on the driver: two wallets containing close to 25 credit cards, social security cards, and driver’s licenses – the vast majority of which didn’t belong to him, a police report said.

And that was just what Shelvin Fairman, 25, of Fort Lauderdale, had in his possession.

In the trunk, officers also found a paper with names, bank account numbers, PIN numbers, social security numbers, and passwords, the report said.

Also, in the 2008 Audi, officers found a loaded gun and a bulletproof vest, as well as a bag of marijuana, the report said.

According to the report, Fairman was stopped on Sept. 15 for going 70 miles-an-hour in a 45 miles-an-hour zone. When officers came to his door, Fairman had “glassy/bloodshot eyes” and they smelled marijuana in the car. He looked nervous.

Police discovered Fairman had his driver’s license suspected in 2016 and he was on probation for carrying a concealed weapon, burglary, and theft.

Once they searched the car, they found the wallets and paper.

Fairman was charged with possession of weapon/firearm by a convicted felon, cannabis possession, violation of probation, driver’s license suspension, and a speeding violation, the report said.

The report didn’t make it clear why Fairman had the credit cards and personal data and or say if he would be facing any further charges.

He remained at Broward County Jail on Sunday on a $5,000 bond for the weapon charge and no bond for the other charges/violations.
