Amarillo, Texas - This afternoon police are looking for a man they say stole another person's identification and has been using it locally to live and work in the United States.

Police say 40 year old Carlos Ortiz went to a local bank in late February to cash a payroll check. The check was good, but his identification was not. Corporal Sean Slover of the Amarillo Police Department says, "The information belonged to an acquaintance of his and he's used the person's information to gainfully be employed in the United States. As far as his employers knew, he was the name on the check, but he wasn't really that person. He was working under an assumed identity."

Police say Ortiz could face deportation as well, since he is an illegal alien. He is 5'5" tall and weighs 190 pounds.

Call Amarillo Crime Stoppers at 374-4400 if you have any information about this case.
