Fake ID
UNBELIEVABLE: The Policia Local are cracking down on citizens carrying fake ID Photo credit: Wikimedia

A 39-YEAR-OLD Latvian man was arrested in Benidorm accused of carrying false documentation and crimes against road safety.

The man was stopped by the Policia Local whilst trying to access the Levante promenade, which was closed to vehicles.

He was asked to provide documentation for the vehicle he was driving along with his personal identification.

The officer who stopped the man called his colleague for assistance as he did not believe the driving license that the man had provided was real.

The second officer arriving at the scene confirmed the driving license was “entirely false” and they proceeded to arrest the man.

He was placed at the disposal of the National Police, who will take steps to verify his identity and bring him to justice.

The Policia Local have organised a training day related to the control of citizens carrying false documentation.
