Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephanie Lamarque says Abdoulaye Barry, 25, is charged with having the fraudulent and aggravated identity theft, which carry a mandatory minimum sentence of two years in prison and a maximum of ten years, plus a $250,000 fine.

Lamarque says Barry was found at the Rainbow Bridge on February 26 with passport card with his picture, but a different name.
