Fake ID and SS card brings arrest


A 36-year-old man is being held in the McLennan County jail and facing immigration charges after police say he was using a Social Security card that actually belonged to a deceased woman.

Juan Carlos Torres was arrested on the Waco Police Department warrant in Odessa and brought back to McLennan County to face charges.

The case goes back to 2014 when police were called to a west Waco medical clinic.

It was determined that a man who had come there was using the fraudulent Social Security card and had also presented a  Texas ID card that was determined to also be fraudulent.

Police obtained an arrest warrant for fraudulent use or possession of identifying information at the time but the man had disappeared.

Odessa police had made contact with Torres and when running a background check on him discovered the outstanding warrant from Waco.
