MOUNT OLIVE, NJ - A Ledgewood man gave Mount Olive police a phony name when he was pulled over Wednesday, but his true identity was found later when his fingerprints were scanned, police said.

The man, Edwin Trocheenomarsdo, 30, was stopped while he was driving on Route 46 in Budd Lake at 11:25 a.m. police said. They said Mount Olive Police Officer Mark Reynolds saw the Subaru being driven by Trocheenomarsdo swerve out of the lane.

"Officer Reynolds made contact with the driver, who identified himself as Eduin Trochez," police said. "Officer Reynolds asked the driver to provide him with identification and while the driver was looking through is wallet, Officer Reynolds observed a permanent resident card in his wallet."

Police said Reynolds determined the name on the card, Eduin Trochez, was fraudulent so he placed the man under arrest. A fingerprint analysis at the police station showed that Trochez was really Trocheenomarsdo, police said. 

Police filed charges including possession of false government documents, hindering own apprehension, unlicensed driving, failing to maintain a lane and maintenance of lamps on the vehicle. Trocheenomarsdo was released pending a court appearance, police said.
