An Antioch man faces up to three years in prison for telling police he was someone else during a traffic stop last week, authorities said.

Larry Terry, 47, of the 800 block of Anita Court, was charged with obstruction of justice, possession of a fraudulent driver's license, possession of a fraudulent Social Security card and possession of fraudulent credit/debit card after his June 18 arrest, Antioch Police said.

Police Chief Craig Somerville said officers conducted a traffic stop on Terry's tan Cadillac near routes 173 and 59 for failure to signal when turning.

During the stop, Terry told officers he was Antonio Hall and provided an Ohio driver's license, Somerville said. A check of the identifiers on the license did not match Terry's physical description, Somerville said.

The officer was told by dispatchers that Hall was in prison and could not be driving the vehicle, Somerville said. Terry was arrested and later admitted to his true identity, Somerville said.

Terry had numerous American Express Blue Bird Pre-Paid Debit Cards in various names and 10 credit cards and a Social Security card in Hall's name, Somerville said.

Terry was taken to the Lake County jail, where he was ordered held on $100,000 bail. He is due back in court July 15,
