Associated Press Release

GAINSVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- A man has been arrested after authorities were tipped that he had been living under a stolen identity for nearly ten years.

Agents with Hall County's Multi Agency Narcotics Squad arrested Hugo Longoria-Cardoza late last week. They charged him with identity theft and first degree forgery. He was booked into the Hall County Jail under an immigration hold.

WGCL-TV reported that Longoria-Cardoza had a Georgia driver's license which had his picture, but the name and date of birth of the victim. Investigators recovered a fraudulent birth certificate and social security card also.

Authorities did not name the victim, but said he does not live in Georgia.
