COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. -- Deputies say a traffic stop on Alligator Alley Monday led to the arrests of three South Florida residents after fake driver's licenses and stolen credit cards were found.

According to the Collier County Sheriff's Office, deputies stopped a white Honda for traffic violations while headed westbound near mile marker 95, just east of Naples.

The driver, 21-year-old Jeovanny Jean-Baptiste of North Miami, had a suspended license and was arrested.

As 18-year-old Dayra Torres of Hollywood was exiting the vehicle, deputies observed her adjusting an object down the front of her pants. She removed the object, which was a small zippered wallet containing seven bank credit cards with other people’s names on them.

A search of the vehicle turned up two Florida driver’s licenses and a South Carolina license inside a purse belonging to Jean-Baptiste. All three licenses had Jean-Baptiste’s picture on them with different addresses and names.

Deputies also found a printer and a file folder containing blank checks inside the trunk.

23-year-old Keith McGee of Sunrise did not have any identification on him and initially gave deputies a fake name, reports said. Further investigation revealed McGee had an active felony warrant out of California for assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer and evading a peace office/driving in a reckless manner.

Jean-Baptiste is charged with fraud – unauthorized possession of blank, forged, or stolen driver’s licenses and driving on a suspended license. Torres is charged with fraud – knowingly unlawfully possessing of five or more identifications. McGee is charged with providing false information to a law enforcement officer.
