Chambersburg woman with three different driver's licenses waives hearing

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Chambersburg woman who was issued three different driver's licenses under three different names waived her preliminary hearing Tuesday in Franklin County Central Court on three counts each of tampering with public records and tampering with public records or identification.

Marta N. Perez, whose age is listed as between 49 years old and 57 years old, of 143 Greenmeadow Lane, was scheduled for mandatory arraignment on the charges Aug. 20.

Pennsylvania State Police said Perez came to their attention after a Pennsylvania Department of Transportation facial recognition computer linked her to three separate driver's licenses, which also had different Social Security numbers.

The affidavit of probable cause stated that she was issued a driver's license under the name Irma Iris Mojica, 57, of 4150 Funk Road, in January 1997. In June 2006, she was issued another under the name Marta Negron-Perez, 49, of 547 S. Second St. Last month, she was issued a license under the name Marta N. Perez, 49, of her current address.


When questioned June 19, Perez produced different identifications, but could not explain why she had identification with different names and Social Security numbers, police said.

Assistant District Attorney Chris Schellhorn said he did not know Perez's motive for using so many names.

Perez might also have registered to vote under different names.

Franklin County Voter Registration Office records included Irma Mojica registering to vote through the Department of Transportation in January 1997. Two months later, in March 1997, Marta N. Perez registered to vote through PennDOT.

In August 1997, Norma I. Mojica registered to vote through PennDOT, according to county records. Norma Mojica's address is the same as given for Irma Mojica, though the birth dates on the registration records are exactly 30 days apart.

In 2000, Marta Negron-Perez registered to vote at the South Second Street address.

The handwriting for the signatures on all four registration documents appears similar.

In 2003, the U.S. Postal Service sent a notice to the Voter Registration office that Negron-Perez had moved and left a forwarding address in Chicopee, Mass.

Perez is out of jail on $10,000 bail, according to a Franklin County Jail official.
