INDIANAPOLIS - An Indianapolis man was arrested Tuesday after police said counterfeit credit cards and gift cards were found in his car.
Halton Kai, 20, was pulled over on Interstate 70 near the 39 mile marker for a license plate violation just before noon, officials with the Indiana State Police said.
Police said Kai showed another person’s driver’s license instead of his own and acted nervous.
Kai did not have a valid driver’s license under his own name, so the officer asked to search the vehicle. Police found more than a dozen counterfeit credit cards and gift cards inside the passenger compartment of the car.
Kai was taken to the Putnam County Jail on charges of forgery, counterfeiting, driving while suspended and false informing.
