A New Year’s Day traffic stop ended with a Plymouth man being arrested for fraud and operator never licensed.

On the morning of January 1st, at approximately 6:30, Officer Schieber with the Plymouth Police Department initiated a traffic stop for a vehicle registration violation at the corner of Fifth and Garro Street. 

The driver was identified as Franyer A. Oliveros-Santano, 29, of West Garro Street in Plymouth.   The officer determined that Oliveros had never been issued a driver’s license.  The paper license plate on the vehicle was also found to be fraudulent.

Oliveros-Santano was taken into custody and booked into the Marshall County Jail for fraud and operating without ever obtaining a license.  He was able to pay the cash bond just before 1 p.m. and was released on bond.
