A 21-year-old man pleaded innocent to allegations that while being questioned about a shoplifting incident, he was found with multiple credit cards and a checkbook, all with different names.
David Eric Stickley of Richland faces a July 23 trial on two counts of second-degree possession of stolen property.
Stickley was detained May 23 by loss prevention officers at Winco after he reportedly was seen taking merchandise from the Kennewick store.
Kennewick officers responded to assist in the shoplifting investigation, and that's when they found a plastic bag on Stickley that contained the credit cards, checkbook and a couple of identifications, court documents said. None of the items were in Stickley's name, documents said.

Police identified the owners of a Gesa Credit Union checking account and a Yakima Federal Savings Visa card. The women reported that their property had been stolen in a prior residential burglary, and that Stickley did not have permission to possess the items, court documents said.
In an interview with officers after his arrest, Stickley said he "found the bag of stolen items," documents said.
