Passport, Foreign Cash Found With Stamford Woman Shot in DC

A 34-year-old Stamford woman shot by police after trying to ram her car through a White House barrier was carrying a lockbox holding a passport, foreign currency and a Connecticut driver's license.

Court documents unsealed on Tuesday reveal items police found during a search of Miriam Carey's Infiniti and a lockbox inside the vehicle.

The documents don't reveal the significance of any of the items, which also included social security cards for her and her daughter.

Carey was shot on Thursday after a high-speed police chase that began outside the White House and ended near the U.S. Capitol. Her 1-year-old daughter was inside the vehicle but was not hurt.


A federal law enforcement official has said that Carey's mental health deteriorated in the last year and that she had delusions President Barack Obama was in contact with her.

Her sister, Amy Carey, said Miriam was struggling with postpartum depression, but "she was not walking around delusional."
