“In 20 years, I’ve never seen anything this elaborate,” New Port Richey police Detective Michael Anderson said at a news conference on Monday.
On July 31, police stopped Antigua’s black Cadillac Escalade, which had tinted windows, a Department of Homeland Security registration sticker and Coast Guard decals. He was cited for driving with a suspended license. During questioning, Antigua showed police a military ID that turned out to be fake.
A subsequent search of two homes uncovered about 200 suspicious items, New Port Richey Police Chief James Steffens told CNN, including “diplomatic license plates and dozens of fake identification cards from the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Department of Defense, CIA and NASA,” as well as “access badges to hospitals around Florida, doctor and nurse scrubs, a respiratory technician badge, police blue lights and access stickers to Coast Guard bases.” Antigua also had at least six Boy Scout uniforms.
