A man was arrested during a traffic stop after using an identification of another man who had an outstanding arrest warrant, police in Utah said.
Parowan Police said that when they stopped a vehicle for a broken license plate light, the driver provided them with a driver’s license registered to 49-year-old Jeffrey Picklesimer.
When the officers ran the driver’s license in their system, they learned that Picklesimer had an outstanding warrant for his arrest.
While police were searching the suspect’s vehicle, they found numerous driver’s licenses with different names and blank checks.
While the man was being transferred to the Iron County Jail, police learned that the man was not Picklesimer. The suspect in custody was later identified as 39-year-old Jeremy Williams.
Williams was charged with possession of identity of another person and possession of a script that was a fake or a device for such a forgery.
Williams was booked into jail and his bail was set at $10,000.
