A Purchase man faces a misdemeanor charge after police say he was caught carrying a fake driver's license in his wallet during a traffic stop.
Zayn Elhajji, 19, of 2900 Purchase St., was charged with third-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, a misdemeanor. Police say they noticed Elhajji fumbling with his wallet after he was pulled over for an alleged traffic violation near the intersection of Westchester Ave. and Purchase St. on Sept. 4.
When police searched the wallet they found what appeared to be a valid Hawaii license and a New Jersey license without the proper hologram, police say.
Elhajji was arrested and processed at police headquarters. He was released without bail and is due in Harrison court Oct. 9.
