PHOENIX -- Police arrested two women Wednesday after they were found illegally living in a Phoenix home.

Police were told there were people living in a home that should be vacant in the area of Peoria and 32nd avenues.

Officers went to the house and contacted Margarette Redden and Kristy Fenton, who showed papers indicating they were legally renting the home, according to Phoenix police spokesman Sgt. Tommy Thompson.

The owner is currently living out of town and he told the officers that he had not rented his home.

Officers determined that the rental documents had been forged. Both women were taken into custody and police learned that the women had done this before.

Thompson said the women also were using stolen credit cards for their own gain.

Redden, 41, faces charges of criminal trespassing, aggravated identity theft, forgery, burglary tools and possession of dangerous drugs. Fenton, 31, faces charges of criminal trespassing, identity theft and forgery.
