Police allege the driver of the stolen vehicle did not provide a driver’s license and used a fake name.  However, using digital fingerprinting, the Police were able to ascertain the identity of the driver as 33 year old Fernando Garcia. The records check also revealed that Garcia’s driver’s license had expired 10 years prior.  Prior to that, Garcia had his license suspended 18 times.

Miami Springs Police claim that Garcia was then read his rights at which point he refused to respond to further questions.

Police then searched the vehicle and reportedly found a machete on the driver side door panel.  Having a machete in a car is not in itself illegal, but it is illegal for a convicted felon to be in possession of a weapon.  According to police, Garcia has had multiple felony convictions.

Fernando Garcia was charged with:

  • Possession of a Weapon by a Convicted Felon
  • Grand theft 3rd Degree – Vehicle
  • Giving a false name after arrest
  • Driving with a suspended license
  • Driving with a license that’s been expired over 6 months
