Monticello - Three men were arrested Monday in three traffic stops, carrying what village police said were fake identification cards.
Jose Gustavo Mendoza, 38, of Monticello, was arrested on Forestburgh Road. Police said that all of the information on Mendozaís Florida driverís license, which he had purchased, was fake.
Jose A. Moya, 21, of Monticello, got caught on Broadway with his fake identification, police said. Moya had purchased a phony New York license in El Salvador before coming to the United States, police said.
When police confronted Moya about his fake license, he introduced himself by a second name that was also false, police said.
Police found Rafael C. Aguilar, 44, of Monticello, on Pleasant Street with a forged Mexican document that they said he tried to pass off as a driverís license.
Mendoza was charged with possession of a forged instrument, a felony, and sent to Sullivan County Jail on $500 bail.
Moya was handed the same charge along with criminal impersonation, a misdemeanor. Moya was released after posting $500 bond.
Aguilar was charged with forgery, a misdemeanor, and released on $100 bail. All three are to appear next month in Village Court.
