A traffic stop near the Navasota River last Wednesday netted 11 illegally purchased government documents, and the arrest of a Honduran man.
The Brazos County Sheriff’s Office arrest report says an officer spotted a truck with temporary buyer’s tags, travelling northbound on Highway 6 near the river bridge. A check in the system found the truck was not legally purchased, and was not inspected in the 180 days prior to the date of sale, which was dated August 13th 2021 on the temporary tags. VIN history of the truck indicated 4 buyers tags had been issued to the driver, in some acceptable variation of his name.
The officer noted thick, white smoke emitting from the truck. The vehicle was stopped near Peach Creek, where the driver was identified by his Honduran passport as 37 year old David Esmelyn Reyes Enamorado of Houston. The officer noted that, in addition to possessing 11 illegally purchased buyer tags and receipts, there was no valid inspection for the vehicle, and it was burning oil.
The officer determined Enamorado’s vehicle information was fraudulently entered into the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles E-Tag system. A number of the temporary tags were from High Country of Houston LLC, and Best Auto Motor LLC, which the officer noted is under investigation by the Travis County Precinct 3 constable Clean Air Task Force for internet sales of fraudulently created Texas Buyer temporary tag.
In all, authorities found six temporary tags, and five Texas Buyer’s Receipts, all located within the cab of the truck. The tags showed that Enamorado had been in violation since August 5th of 2020, and intentionally used them, knowing they were false.
Enamorado was charged with Tampering with a Government Record, and was released the next day after posting a $10,000 bond.
