BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) — The California Highway Patrol says an officer conducting a routine traffic stop found $13,000 of stolen Disney merchandise.

The CHP says a Nissan Sentra was pulled over Friday in Kern County after the driver failed to stop when approaching a school bus.

The officer learned the driver's license was suspended and then discovered hundreds of pins and other merchandise allegedly stolen from Disneyland.

Officials didn't immediately identify the motorist.

Authorities say the CHP has contacted Disneyland security and made arrangements to return the property.
