Sandro Tentory was arrested on Thursday, June 7 under suspicion of forgery and an outstanding FBI felony warrant. 

A Sahuarita man was arrested earlier this month on suspicion of forgery and for a prior felony arrest warrant, the Arizona Department of Transportation said in a news release.

ADOT detectives used facial recognition technology to determine that Sandro Tentory, 43, had two Arizona driver's licenses under false names.

Tentory allegedly stole two identities from individuals residing in Illinois to maintain the Arizona driver's licenses, officials said. Tentory had used the fake IDs for 13 years, ADOT said.

According to the FBI, Tentory was a documented gang member from Chicago.

Tentory also had an outstanding FBI felony arrest warrant for weapons violations, and has prior history of violence that includes charges of aggravated assault and drug sales, the release shows. 

ADOT said detectives learned that Tentory had two licenses with different names and dates of birth, but the photos were both Tentory.

On June 7, detectives arrested Tentory at his residence. He was booked into the Pima County Jail. While at his residence, detectives also found several fake IDs, credit cards, and loan documents.
