A Utah woman was arrested after she allegedly impersonated her daughter during a traffic stop, police said.
Heather Garcia, 38, was driving a silver BMW when she was pulled over on Main Street in Farmington Saturday because a cop noticed her vehicle did not have a license plate, KABB reported.
The officer searched her car and allegedly discovered drug paraphernalia and a white powdery substance.
Garcia was arrested and said her name was Mercedes and that she was born in 1998, officials said.
But police soon realized through a records check that the identity Garcia provided was that of her 21-year-old daughter. They then learned Garcia’s real name and saw she had outstanding warrants, KABB reported.
Garcia was charged with drug possession, driving with a revoked license and offering false personal information to a police officer.
She is being held at the Davis County jail.
