Upon checking the verbally identified credentials, the officer received no return from the system. At that time the suspect began to change his story. Since there was no identification, no return of information from the system, and no consistency in the suspect’s story he was taken into custody for driving without a license on a highway. Officers subsequently conducted an inventory of the vehicle and discovered a letter addressed to a Scott Culton.
