Man with No Name But 12 IDs Arrested After Fleeing Police

The Morning Call

May 26, 2011

Allentown, Pennsylvania — State police arrested an unidentified man with 12 fake identification cards after he ran from them at Lehigh Valley International Airport, according to court records.

Troopers with the Bethlehem barracks’ Criminal Investigations Division were called to the airport at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday on a report of a suspicious person who was arriving on a United Airlines Flight 3866 from Washington, D.C., according to court records.

The man arrived and was walking through the airport terminal in Hanover Township, Lehigh County, carrying a black duffel bag.

According to court records:

State police approached the man and asked if he would talk to them and the man agreed. He identified himself with a Texas driver’s license and said his name was John C. Jackson, 27, of Corpus Christi.

State police wrote down the man’s information and then asked him to repeat his date of birth and he gave a wrong one before correcting himself. After a few more questions, the man fled through the airport terminal and into the airport parking lot.

While running, the man tossed a small black wallet into some shrubs. The man was arrested and state police found the wallet, which contained 12 counterfeit driver’s licenses, from Pennsylvania, Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, Ohio and Rhode Island.

State police have been unable to identify the man.

The man was charged as John Doe with 12 counts each of forgery and tampering with public records or information. He was arraigned before District Judge Ron Manescu and sent to Lehigh County Prison under $250,000 bail.

    I love how he got on a flight with that junk. Further proof that we need to chip out citizens like dogs! I don’t know why they are slacking on that.
