WESTPORT, Conn., -- A Bridgeport man who allegedly used a fake Connecticut driver's license to obtain packages being delivered to a Westport home in October was arrested Friday, police said.

Leeroy Maragh, 26, of 132 Fairview Ave., was arrested on a second-degree forgery charge at the Norwalk courthouse.

In October, a UPS driver was delivering a package to a Westport home when he was stopped by a man claiming he was the homeowner, police said.

The man showed the UPS driver a driver's license, which the driver thought was strange and took a photograph of the license, police said.

Westport detectives were able to match this type of Identity theft to similar crimes committed in Redding and Stratford, police said.

Detectives were able to positively identify Maragh as the suspect after he was arrested in Redding in a similar crime, police said. Stratford also had a warrant for his arrest in a similar crime, police said.

Maragh was arraigned Friday. There was no information on his bond or his next scheduled court date.
