NASHUA – Police are trying to determine the true identity of a man who attempted to obtain a driver’s license using fraudulent paperwork at the Nashua office of the state Division of Motor Vehicles.

The man, who was arrested last week, claimed to be 32-year-old Helton Jose Marin Perez, of Manchester, when he visited the DMV office at 110 Broad St.

Employees at the office developed suspicions about the authenticity of his paperwork and summoned New Hampshire State Police for assistance at 10:56 a.m. Trooper Geoffrey Rogan responded and arrested the man claiming to be Marin Perez after determining his paperwork had been “tampered with,” according to an announcement from state police. Rogan was assisted by officials from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

It was the third time in a week that employees at the Nashua DMV office were presented with false documents from people seeking a New Hampshire driver’s license.

On Tuesday, state police troopers arrested a man claiming to be Jose Miguel Alvarado, 25, of Peabody, Massachusetts, who tried to get a driver’s license with phony documents.

A second person, Leisa Yarelis Tejeda Pimentel, 24, of Peabody, also was arrested on multiple charges alleging she tampered with official paperwork. Additionally, police said Tejeda Pimentel used a false identity to enter the country illegally from the Dominican Republic.

The man claiming to be Marin Perez faces charges of tampering with public records and unsworn falsification. He was being held without bail pending an arraignment Monday at 10 a.m. in Nashua district court.

New Hampshire State Police were still attempting last week to determine the man’s identity. Anyone with information about the individual is encouraged to contact Sgt. Andrew Player at 603-223-8778.
