Police arrested a 25-year-old man for allegedly driving a vehicle with a fake license plate in Northern Westchester.

Ivan Mejia, of Shrub Oak, was arrested on Sunday, Oct. 25, after a Yorktown Police officer was dispatched to a report of a possible stolen vehicle traveling northbound on the Taconic Parkway, said the Yorktown Police.

The officer located the vehicle and initiated a traffic stop in the area of Route 132, police said.

During an investigation, it was determined that Mejia had allegedly placed a forged New Jersey temporary tag on the vehicle.

He was arrested and charged with criminal possession of a forged instrument and released on his own recognizance.
