MANCHESTER — State police arrested two people Friday — one for using false documents to try to obtain a driver’s license and the other on a burglary warrant — and both were apprehended at the Division of Motor Vehicles in Manchester.

DMV staff first called troopers for assistance at 10:30 a.m. after receiving what they believed were false documents from a male subject.

The man had identified himself as Juan Carlos Nieves-Ortiz, 40, of Manchester.

State police officials said they confirmed that the documents were fraudulent.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement assisted in identifying the man as Yolin Bolivar Peguero-Martinez, 40, of the Dominican Republic.

Peguero-Martinez was charged with 13 criminal offenses, including false swearing, tampering with public records and possessing false identification.

He is being held in the Hillsborough County House of Corrections pending his arraignment Monday in 9th Circuit Court Manchester District Division, officials said.

As state troopers were clearing the scene around 1 p.m., they did a check on subjects in a parked car outside the DMV office.

Police learned that one of them, Wayne Wright, 22, of Manchester, had an outstanding arrest warrant on a burglary charge issued in Rockingham County Superior Court.

Wright was transported to the Rockingham County House of Corrections pending his arraignment Monday in Superior Court.

State police officials said another occupant of the car possessed marijuana and was released after being given a violation summons.
