An East Naples man was arrested Monday while visiting an inmate at the Naples Jail Center after corrections officers noticed the ID he gave them was fake.

A deputy said she took the man’s Mexican ID card around 12:30 p.m. and immediately was suspicious about its legitimacy. Jail policy requires visitors to present staff with an ID before they are able to do video visitation with an inmate.

The deputy found at least two discrepancies when she cross-checked the man’s ID against an international guidebook, according to reports. Maximino Jose-Reyes, 47, of the 4000 block of Rose Avenue, faces a felony charge of possession of a fraudulent ID card.

Visitors at the Naples Jail Center must have a current, valid, government-issued ID, but it does not have to be from the U.S., according to corrections personnel.
