Oscar Euceda of Gurnee was arrested Friday for obstruction of justice and possession of a fraudulent identification card, both felonies, as well as driving without a license, according to Bannockburn Police reports.
Euceda and another driver were involved in a non injury accident in the vicinity of Waukegan and Half Day Roads Friday, according to the report. After Euceda said he did not have a driver’s license, police asked to see the wallet observed in his hip pocket. He removed an item before handing it to the officer.
After observing the removal of an item, police asked for it and discovered it was an identification card for another person with an incorrect font and missing a hologram security feature, according to the report.
Further investigation revealed Euceda used the same identification card in 2007 and was arrested for using it, according to the report. When he did not appear in court on Dec. 27, 2007, a fugitive warrant was issued against him for failure to appear with a bond of $153,000 set.
Later that day, Bannockburn police took Euceda to a bond hearing in Lake County Court in Waukegan where Judge Raymond Collins kept original bond of $153,000 in place, according to the report.
