NORFOLK, Neb. -- A Tilden man is in custody after alleged criminal impersonation.

Shortly before 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, a Norfolk Police officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle because the registered owner had an active Stanton County arrest warrant.

The officer had contact with the driver and asked for identification. The driver reportedly stated that he did not have his license and then verbally identified himself with a fake name, according to an NPD press release.

The officer confirmed the driver’s identity as Jake R. Short, 21, of Tilden, the registered owner, by obtaining his driver’s license photo.

Short was arrested for criminal impersonation and the Stanton County arrest warrant.

He was housed in the Norfolk City Jail and later transferred to the Madison County Jail.
