Man Arrested After Deputy Finds License Plates In Car

A San Bernardino man was arrested after he told a deputy who pulled him over and found a stack of license plates that he was a CIA agent.

Federico Mucio was arrested in Loma Linda for investigation of possessing stolen property and owning or making false license plate
registration tabs.

Authorities say the 45-year-old Mucio produced what appeared to be a CIA identification card after he was pulled over Saturday for a broken taillight.

Authorities say the deputy searched Mucio's backpack and found 12 license plates from five different states and a U.S. government plate that was later found to have been stolen.

Investigators say a program was found on a computer in Mucio's home to make fake registration tabs.

Deputies do not believe Mucio was a government agent, although they had not gotten definitive word from the CIA as of Monday morning.
