CEDAR RAPIDS – A Mexican alien caught in Cedar Falls with fake ID documents as he was accused of stealing has been sent to prison.

Aldair Rodriguez, age 23, a citizen of Mexico unlawfully present in the United States and residing in Albuquerque, New Mexico, received a two-month prison term after an earlier guilty plea to unlawful possession of identification documents.

At the guilty plea, Rodriguez admitted he knowingly possessed fraudulent identification cards, specifically a social security card and a permanent resident card. These types of cards are prescribed by law as evidence of authorized stay or employment in the United States. The identification cards bore an alias name and the government-issued numbers on the cards belonged to other persons. The cards were found on October 22, 2017, during a search incident to arrest by the Cedar Falls Police Department on a state criminal charge.  He faces a trial in April in Black Hawk county on a charge of fifth-degree theft.

Rodriguez was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Chief Judge Leonard T. Strand. Rodriguez was sentenced to 73 days’ imprisonment. He must also serve a one-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

Rodriguez is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until he can be turned over to immigration officials.
