Woman impersonated 21-year-old daughter during traffic stop to avoid arrest

Woman impersonated 21-year-old daughter during traffic stop to avoid arrest”

A Utah woman allegedly tried to avoid arrest for outstanding warrants by pretending to be her 21-year-old daughter during a traffic stop-but the ruse didn't fool authorities.

Police arrested Heather Elaine Garcia early Saturday on suspicion of driving without a licence while transporting illegal drugs in the vehicle.

Heather Garcia was driving a silver BMW when she was pulled over on Main Street in the town of Farmington in Utah after a Davis County police officer noticed that her auto was missing a license plate.

Garcia sneakily attempted to fool law enforcement by claiming that her name was Mercedes. However, a records check would reveal that Garcia had actually provided her daughter's name to police rather than her own.

Deputies also located Garcia's identification in her purse, and the deputy stated that while she did look very similar to her daughter, they were able to positively identify the woman as Heather Garcia.

During a search of her vehicle, police recovered drug paraphernalia and a white powdery substance.

The mother was charged with providing false personal information to an officer, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving with a suspended or revoked licence and other offences.
