Lawrence man arrested after using fake identity to obtain driver’s license

A Lawrence man was arrested after he allegedly used false information to obtain a driver’s license, according to New Hampshire state police.

According to police, 48-year-old Luis Medina had been claiming to be 49-year-old Miguel Roldan Jr. of Manchester.

Police said a trooper learned Medina had recently renewed his motor vehicle registration, and while he was in route to conduct a follow-up investigation, he saw Medina driving along South Willow Street.

The trooper conducted a traffic stop, and was able to confirm Medina had used a fake identity to obtain his license.

Medina was charged with disobeying a police officer, operating after suspension, prohibitions, and multiple counts of tampering with public records.

Medina was found to have an outstanding arrest warrant out of Massachusetts for trafficking controlled substances. Police also discovered Medina was a native of the Dominican Republic who was living in the U.S. illegally.

Medina refused bail and was held at the Hillsborough County House of Corrections. He will be arraigned in the 9th Circuit District Division Manchester Court at 9:00 a.m. Monday.
