RENO, NV - Police at Reno-Tahoe International Airport have arrested a Sacramento man accused of having fake ID.

The Transportation Security Administration says Friday afternoon, an officer with TSA was routinely checking passengers' travel documents at the TSA security checkpoint. While checking the identification of a male passenger ticketed for travel to Oakland, the officer noticed the ID card did not have the usual security features and it appeared to be fraudulent.

TSA notified Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Police, who interviewed Deon Briggs and discovered he was in possession of a fraudulent Texas Driver's License, two expired identification cards (in his true name) and seven counterfeit credit cards.

The fraudulent cards were confiscated and the passenger was arrested on seven state felony charges. In addition, the suspect is a convicted felon who is currently wanted in the State of California.
