MALONE — A Mexican citizen is being held in Franklin County Jail on $100,000 bail after being indicted for allegedly having someone else’s identification documents.
Francisco Carbajal, 35, who had been living in Lowville, pleaded not guilty to a grand-jury indictment Monday that charged him with failure to signal and two counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument.
He was reportedly pulled over by police in the Village of Tupper Lake on Jan. 8 and allegedly produced a Social Security card and a permanent-resident card that belonged to someone else, according to the Franklin County District Attorney’s Office.
Carbajal also allegedly had $15,000 in cash on him when he was stopped.
He was arraigned before Franklin County Court Judge Robert G. Main Jr. and sent back to County Jail in lieu of $100,000 cash bail or $200,000 insurance bond.
His next court date is a conference scheduled for July 25.
Carbajal, whose defense attorney is Peter Dumas of Malone, has been in custody since his arrest in January.
