JASPER — Authorities booked a man into jail Tuesday on a warrant charging him with identity deception, false identity statement and driving while classified as a habitual traffic violator.
Charging information alleges that on Aug. 9 of last year, James S. Hunter, 49, 508 E. Village Court, Jasper, drove in Jasper while classified as a habitual traffic violator, used another’s identifying information without consent and made a false statement to mislead a public servant.
The Jasper Police Department investigated the case, and on Friday, a warrant was issued out of Dubois Superior Court charging Hunter with Level 6 felony driving while classified as a habitual traffic violator and identity deception, plus misdemeanor making a false identity statement.
Authorities booked Hunter into the Dubois County Security Center at 2:22 p.m. Tuesday on the active warrant.
