A 29-year-old Texas man faces a felony charges after police say he used a fake ID at a Garden City dispensary.
Garden City police responded about 6 p.m. July 9 to Smokey’s 420 House, 2515 7th Ave., where a supervisor reported an ID was not scanning properly. The ID was a South Carolina driver’s license with the name “Braylon Henderson.”
The officer asked the man who attempted to use the ID, identified by police as Justin Eugene Lewis, 29, to confirm his name, date of birth and address. Lewis gave his name as Braylon and the correct date of birth, but he was unable to tell the officer the address listed on the driver’s license, according to court documents. The officer told Lewis what city was listed on the driver’s license, but Lewis still couldn’t remember the address. He also gave the wrong apartment number.
While looking through his phone, Lewis told the officer the correct address on the driver’s license.
Police, however, found no records associated with that information out of South Carolina. Asked where he got the ID from, Lewis responded, “It’s mine, I bought it,” court records state.
Lewis told police he didn’t have an ID and that he got the fake ID from a friend in Texas, according to an affidavit for his arrest. He said he paid about $30 for it.
Police asked Lewis why he didn’t use his ID, being of-age to purchase marijuana legally. He told police he left his ID at home, so he used the fake one to buy marijuana, according to court records. He said he used it at two other dispensaries, but didn’t purchase anything there because they didn’t have anything he liked.
Lewis said he was a truck driver and needed to make a delivery in the morning.
