Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Ft. Worth woman yesterday after discovering a fraudulent social security card during a traffic stop.
25 year old Maria Cristina Lopez-Castillo was the passenger of a vehicle pulled over by a HCSO deputy on I-30 after the deputy observed the vehicle did not have a license plate light. Upon making contact the deputy observed the odor of marijuana and could see suspected marijuana in the vehicle.
A forged social security card with Lopez-Castillo’s name on it was located during a probable cause search of the vehicle. A records check revealed the social security number on the card belonged to a deceased person.
Lopez-Castillo was arrested and charged with Fraudulent Use/Possession of Identifying Items, Less than 5 Items. She is currently held at Hopkins County Jail. Bond has not been set.
