Man Charged with Identity Theft, Forgery

A Florida man accused of stealing his brother’s identity to get out of a traffic ticket in Bradford has waived his preliminary hearing on a couple of felony charges.

Daniel Bley of Tampa was stopped for driving at an unsafe speed and careless driving on East Main Street back on August 16. He told police he didn’t have his driver’s license and, when asked for his identifying information, gave police the name and information of his brother, according to court papers. A couple of months later Bley’s brother called the district judge, asked why he had a traffic citation on his record, and said he’d never been to Bradford.

Ten days later police learned Daniel had used his brother’s information, and then charged him with forgery and identity theft, as well as obstruction and giving false information to police. He’s free on bail.
