NEWS RELEASE - JACKSON COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Two arrests in 4 days have resulted in two people being jailed
for having possessed or used false information to receive an Indiana BMV
Identification Card and an Indiana BMV Learners Permit following traffic stops
in Jackson County.
On 3/24/16, Abraham Soto-Jaimes (35) of Seymour was arrested after being stopped
for a traffic violation in the 9000 E. Block of Enos Rd. Mr. Soto-Jaimes was
initially charged with operating a motor vehicle having never received a
driver's license, a class C misdemeanor. However, while being booked into the
jail, the arresting officer found an Indiana BMV identification card with a
variation of the name, Soto Abraham. BMV records showed that the ID card was
fraudulent. Mr. Soto-Jaimes received an additional charge of False
Application for a Government Identification Card, a level 6 felony. He has
since bonded out $1,505.00 cash bond.
On 3/29/16, Alejandro Clemente-Gregorio (45) of Seymour was arrested after being
stopped for a traffic violation on CR 340 N. Mr. Clemente-Gregorio was also
arrested for operating a motor vehicle having never received a driver's license.
However, BMV records showed that his Indiana Learners Permit status was
invalid/revoked and indefinitely suspended for failing to validate the Social
Security Number he had reported to the BMV. Further investigation found that
Mr. Clemente-Gregorio had been "given" a SSN to use when he came to work in the
United States but it was not assigned to him by the Social Security
Administration. He is currently being held without bond in the Jackson County
Both incidents were investigated by Reserve Deputy Scott Davis.
