The subject and an associate discussed credit. The associate took the subject to a display case where the subject took interest in pre-set rings. The associate entered the subject’s contact information into her tablet. She then told him she needed his drivers’ license. The subject said it was in his car. The associate told him to go get it. He went to get it and came back in.
