Windsor Police have a Windsor man in custody facing fraud charges.
Police say it all began on Tuesday when a traffic enforcement officer stopped a vehicle for running a red light in the area of Banwell and E.C. Row and the driver provided police with a fake name.
The driver was acting in a nervous and suspicious manner and became evasive about answering questions. He was subsequently arrested and transported to Windsor Police headquarters for failing to identify himself.

It was then that investigators in the Fraud Unit seized dozens of fake Social Insurance cards, student photo identification cards, and credit cards. The police investigation has revealed that the suspect would use the various forms of identification to apply for and obtain credit cards. To date the fraud amount is in nearly $35,000.
