Sunday evening, June 25th, at around 11:30 PM, a Troop D Trooper was patrolling the I-395 exit 88 commuter lot in Plainfield. The Trooper spotted two individuals sleeping in a car and approached them to conduct a well-being check. The male party in the car told the Trooper he did not have any form of identification and provided a name and date of birth. When the Trooper ran that name and date of birth, it was discovered that an active arrest warrant existed for that person. When the Trooper question the male subject further, he admitted he lied and gave his friends name. The Trooper then obtained the male party’s real name which is 29 year old Benjamin Smith of Brooklyn. When the Trooper ran the correct name and date of birth it was discovered that Smith held an active arrest warrant for failure to appear. Smith was placed under arrest and transported back to Troop D where he was processed and charged with criminal impersonation and failure to appear. Smith was held on a combined bond of $3500.00 and was due in Danielson Superior court on Monday.
