ECSO: Cantonment Man Caught With Dozens Of Driver’s Licenses

December 13, 2018

A Cantonment was jailed after he was allegedly found with dozens of driver’s licenses in his possession.

Brett Henry Barlow, 27, was charged with five counts of possession of a fictitious Florida driver’s license, possession of drug paraphernalia and giving a false name to a law enforcement officer.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office responded to a prowler complaint on Unity Court near Lincoln Park where Barlow was allegedly sitting on someone’s back porch. When deputies approached Barlow and asked for identification, he reached down and grabbed one of several identification cards that were at his feet. The photo on the card not appear to be Barlow, according to arrest report, and he verbally provided a false name and date of birth.

Inside Barlow’s satchel, deputies reported finding 36 driver’s licenses from 19 different states and five Florida driver’s licenses. The Florida licenses were not valid, and the the identifications from the others states were “noted to a have numerous suspicious errors,” the arrest report states.

Deputies were able to contact the person listed on a military identification card, two bank cards and a matching New Mexico driver’s license also found in the satchel. The victim told deputies she had left her wallet in a public bathroom at a motel on Barrancas Avenue.

Barlow also had two syringes in his possession, one of which was filled with a brownish liquid that tested negative for heroin, according to the Sheriff’s Office. It is being forwarded to a laboratory for further testing.

Once Barlow provided his correct name to deputies, they determined he had an outstanding  warrant from Escambia County for failure to appear on a petit theft charged and Georgia warrant for a probation violation.

Barlow remained in the Escambia County Jail Thursday morning.

    In lone chiefs defense, it IS a federal crime to possess a fraudulent military ID. I’m sure the military is already aware of this putz. He’s not real smart to say the least.

    If he was in possession of military ID cards give him to NCIS or DIA. Let them proclaim him a terrorist and he might actually go away for a while.
