LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a woman after she was found with a stolen access card belonging to a "high ranking" Louisville Metro EMS administrative employee.

According to an arrest report, 47-year-old Angela L. Johnson was pulled over on W. Muhammad Ali Blvd., near Louis Coleman Jr. Drive, shortly after 10 p.m. Monday, after officers noticed that her vehicle didn't have a rear view mirror.

Police say Johnson was unable to produce a valid proof of insurance, but allowed officers to search her vehicle. Officers allegedly found a pipe, as well as several additional items used to smoke crack cocaine.

Police say they also found a folder containing numerous personal and confidential documents belonging to another person -- including that person's social security cards and birth certificates. According to the arrest report, Johnson told police she was given those documents so she could obtain guardianship over a mentally handicapped 18-year-old woman, and that she planned to take them to the social security office Tuesday morning so she could get benefits on the woman's behalf.

Johnson allegedly told police that she worked for Maryhurst, a safe place for children who have suffered abuse or trauma, but when an officer tried to verify her employment, police say she recanted her statement. She then allegedly admitted that she doesn't work anywhere, and that she had no right to access the confidential documents.

Police say she was also found with a "metro card" -- an access card/ID that belonged to a "high-ranking LMEMS administrative employee." The card allegedly gave her access to restricted government buildings. Police say the card was never reported stolen, and do not identify the employee.

Johnson allegedly told police that she is not licensed or authorized by the state to provide custodial care for a mentally handicapped dependent, but insisted that she was given "permission" from her "friend."

She was arrested and charged with identity theft, possession of drug paraphernalia, not having a rear view mirror and failure to maintain required insurance.
