(SEYMOUR) - Jackson County deputies arrested a man during a traffic stop after they discovered he was carrying a fake government ID and had been deported twice.

A deputy pulled over a beige Nissan car on State Road 11 in Seymour on Tuesday around 4:26 p.m. because the color of the vehicle did not match the color reported on the BMV license plate information.

Deputies discovered the driver, 23-year-old Roni Alfredo Morales Duarte, of Seymour, was only in possession of a Honduran ID card.

A deputy arrested him for operating a motor vehicle without ever obtaining a driver's license, a class C misdemeanor.

A deputy also found a counterfeit Social Security Card in Duarte's possession.

Deputies then discovered Duarte had been arrested and deported twice in 2014 for violation of the United States Immigration and Nationality Act.

Duarte was also arrested for possession of a counterfeit government ID, a class A misdemeanor and identity deception, a level 6 Felony.

He is being held without bond in the Jackson County Jail.
