(ODON) - A traffic stop for a seat belt violation ended with the driver going to jail for having fake government identification cards.

At 12:55 p.m. Tuesday, Indiana State Police Senior Trooper Jarrod Lents was on patrol when he noticed the driver of a green 1994 Plymouth Grand Voyager traveling northbound East Street in Odon without his seat belt fastened. Lents pulled over the mini-van and spoke with the driver, 51-year-old Victor Noriega Natareno, of Odon.

During the course of the stop, Natareno presented Lents with an identification card from the Guatemalan consulate.

As he did so, Lents saw what appeared to be an Indiana identification card in Natareno's wallet.

Natareno gave the card to Lents; the card had Natareno's picture but had a different name and was noticeably fraudulent.

Lents later learned that the card was in fact fraudulent, and that Natareno was in the United States illegally. Lents additionally found Natareno to be in possession of a fraudulent Social Security card, as well as a United States Permanent Resident card.

Natareno was arrested without incident on three counts of possessing a counterfeit government identification card and for operating a vehicle while never licensed.
