New Hampshire State Police troopers arrested two people at the state Division of Motor Vehicles in Nashua on Tuesday and accused them of trying to get New Hampshire licenses using fraudulent documents.

Troopers from NHSP Troop G, which handles commercial vehicle enforcement, were called to the DMV office on Broad Street after employees said a man claiming to be Jose Miguel Alvarado, 25, of Peabody, Mass., tried to get a driver’s license with phony documents. Police are trying to determine the man’s actual identity.

He was charged with tampering with public records and unsworn falsification and police asked anyone who knows his true identity to contact Sgt. Andrew Player at 223-8778, police said.

A second person, Leisa Yarelis Tejeda Pimentel, 24, of Peabody, Mass., also was arrested and charged with multiple counts of tampering with public records, unsworn falsification and conspiracy to commit unsworn falsification. Tejeda Pimentel also used a false identity to enter the country illegally from the Dominican Republic, police said.

Both were arrested at the DMV. Alvarado was held without bail and Tejeda Pimentel on $5,000 bail pending their arraignments at Nashua district court Wednesday morning, police said.

The state troopers were assisted by troopers from Troop B in Bedford, as well as members of the Nashua Police Department, the state DMV and members of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, police said.
