On Wednesday, Police in St. Catharines, Ont. charged a man for allegedly trying to purchase a high-end vehicle at a dealership with someone else’s identification.

Investigators for this case say the 34-year-old from Windsor was attempting to buy a 2021 Cadillac Escalade, valued at nearly $170,000, at Cars Unlimited on Church Street.

Luckily the employees from the dealership noticed the false identification during the transaction and reached out to police.

“The male suspect attempted to falsely identify himself to … officers with the fraudulent identification, ” Niagara Regional Police said in a release.

“Officers determined the suspect was in possession of two fraudulent pieces of identification; a social insurance card, and a British Columbia driver’s licence.”

The accused is facing four charges including identity theft and fraud over $5,000.
