SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- An Uber driver is accused of identity theft after allegedly taking a wallet from a passenger who fell asleep on a ride from San Francisco to Berkeley.

The passenger apparently dozed off with her wallet and phone on her lap and later found she had been overcharged $20 for the ride and that her credit cards had been used at stores throughout San Francisco.
