RPD: Man tried to use another’s identity to evade arrest

A Richmond man was arrested Saturday after police say he gave an officer false information about his identity.

Ben Rose, 49, Eastern Bypass, was charged with theft of identity of another and taken to the Madison County Detention Center.

Officers were sent to the Country Hearth Inn, 230 Eastern Bypass, to serve a warrant on Rose for failure to appear in court, according to an RPD report.

When they arrived, they saw Rose in the doorway of his room and approached him. He then gave the officers a name and social security number of another person, the report stated.

The officers determined Rose had given them false information, and when he was taken into custody, they found a credit card and other personal identifiers of the person he was trying to impersonate, according to the report.
