Like mother like daughter, or so one Utah woman, 38, thought after allegedly trying to pass herself off as her 21-year-old child during a traffic stop.
Police arrested Heather Elaine Garcia early Saturday on suspicion of driving without a licence while transporting illegal drugs in the vehicle. She was arrested north of Salt Lake City.
The 38-year-old was taken to Davis County Jail and is now facing charges including marijuana possession, use or possession of drug paraphernalia, driving on a suspended licence or registration, driving without insurance and falsifying personal information to a peace officer, according to jail records.
Fox News reports that the woman was driving a silver BMW at the time she was pulled over on Main Street for not having a licence plate on the vehicle.
A search of the car revealed drug paraphernalia and a white powdery substance, according to the publication.
Garcia allegedly identified herself as her daughter Mercedes and claimed she was born in 1998, Fox News reports.
