Westhampton Beach Village police reports from Sept. 27 through Oct. 24:
Westhampton Beach Village Police discovered that a 23-year-old man had re-entered the U.S. after having been deported, but was using his friend’s name to avoid detection by Homeland Security.
Village police stopped Elian Alejandro Lima-Morataya of Westhampton Beach for a traffic violation on South Country Road Sunday at 1:10 p.m. and discovered he did not have a driver’s license or any documentation. Police said they brought him into headquarters on Mill Road and fingerprinted him, finding out that the name he originally gave was not his real one and that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security had deported him in 2007 for illegal entry.
Lima-Morataya told police that the name was his friend’s, and that he used it to avoid another deportation. The country Lima-Morataya was originally deported to was not immediately available.
Police said they received word from Homeland Security that Lima-Morataya would be deported again. He is currently in Suffolk County Jail in Riverside.
Westhampton Beach Village Police charged Lima-Morataya with second-degree forgery, a felony, and third-degree criminal impersonation and driving without a license, both misdemeanors.
Victor Mosley, 45, of Riverhead was stopped by Village Police Sunday at 4:14 a.m. on Old Riverhead Road in Westhampton Beach and cited for third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, a misdemeanor. Police pulled Mosley over for driving out of lane when they discovered his license had been suspended numerous times.
