FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A Brooklyn man is accused of possessing 20 driver’s licenses from three different states and 289 Social Security numbers.
Police said Emmanuel Egbunike, 43, was first picked up in Farmingdale by detectives from the Town of Mamaroneck Police Department last Wednesday and charged with grand larceny. It was not immediately clear what led Mamaroneck police to arrest Egbunike.
After obtaining a search warrant, detectives searched Egbunike’s vehicle and found 10 New Jersey driver’s licenses, nine from Maryland and one from Connecticut, all with his photo on them, police said.
“Detectives also recovered names, dates of birth and Social Security numbers of 289 individuals,” police spokesperson Bernadette Zimmermann told WCBS 880’s Mike Xirinachs.
