Written by FBI News   

BOSTON - A Dominican national was sentenced yesterday in federal court in Boston for falsely representing a number to be his social security number. Luis Miguel Mejia Lugo, 25, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Nathaniel M. Gorton to time served and was taken into federal custody for deportation proceedings. On June 16, 2017, Mejia Lugo pleaded guilty to one count of misuse of a social security number.

On June 3, 2016, a man who identified himself as "Josue Marrero," but who later was identified as Mejia Lugo, was arrested in Methuen for armed robbery and firearms charges. When Mejia Lugo was booked early the following morning, in order to hide his true identity, he represented a number to be his social security number when in fact it was not.

Acting United States Attorney William D. Weinreb; Harold H. Shaw, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Boston Field Office; Matthew Etre, Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigations in Boston; and Essex County Sheriff Kevin F. Coppinger made the announcement today. Assistance with the investigation was provided by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the Social Security Administration, and the FBI's Criminal Justice Information Service. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Kelly Begg Lawrence and Robert E. Richardson of Weinreb's Major Crimes Unit prosecuted the case.
