A man who has been in the country illegally for four years was arrested after a traffic stop on U.S. 301 in Wildwood.

Geremias Moreno Diaz, 23, of Summerfield, was driving a blue utility vehicle at 9:25 a.m. Monday on U.S. 301 when an officer ran the license plate and found that the vehicle’s registered owner did not have a Florida’s driver’s license, according to an arrest report from the Wildwood Police Department.

During a traffic stop, Moreno Diaz handed the officer a Mexico identification card. He admitted he has been living illegally for four years in the United States. He was arrested on a charge of operating a motor vehicle without a license and booked at the Sumter County Detention Center on $500 bond.
