A Philadlephia man is facing a charge of false indentification to law enforcement authorities following an incident in Nesquehoning.
Borough police said Ricardo Martinez, 44, of 4252 Ormond St., was charged following an incident that occurred on Saturday, July 1, about 12:43 a.m. following a vehicle stop at the intersection of state routes 209 and 93.
Officer Brian White stopped a Honda Accord at that location. Martinez was a passenger in the vehicle. During the stop Martinez was asked to produce identification. Martinez gave his name as Ricado Martinez and a birth date of Dec. 29, 1967. A check was run through the county communications center and nothing was found for that name.
He then gave the name of Ricardo Martinez with the same birth date, again the communications center could not find anything under that name. He was then advised that the name was not coming up when checked.
He was taken into custody and transported to the state police barracks at Lehighton for a livescan. While waiting for the results of the livescan Martinez gave the name of Carlos Sanchez with a birth date of Jan. 9, 1967.
The livescan produced no information for either Martinez or Sanchez.
After consultation with an assistant district attorney, White charged Martinez.
