ANTIOCH, Ill. — During a routine traffic stop, a driver produced an ID belonging to a Illinois inmate who was still currently incarcerated.
The Sun Times reports that a man identifying himself as Antonio Hall was pulled over for failing to signal and making an illegal lane change. When the details on the license didn’t match the driver in question, the officer conducting the traffic stop contacted a dispatcher.
The dispatcher returned that Antonio Hall was currently incarcerated at the Menard Illinois Correctional Institution. The DOC also verified that they were still holding Hall.
The driver was taken into custody and identified as Larry Terry through fingerprints. He also had on his person 10 different credit cards with different names as well as Antonio Hall’s Social Security card.
