JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- "John Doe" faces several charges, but his identity has not yet been confirmed.
According to a news release from United States Attorney Robert E. O'Neill, John Doe is also known as Leroy Mayers or Leroy Meyers, or L.T.H.
Today, O'Neill announced a multi-count indictment against "Doe," who is charged with aggravated identity theft, passport fraud, falsely representing a Social Security number and fraud against the United States involving an identification document.
O'Neill referred to documents alleging that Doe assumed the identity of a living victim, including the victim's Social Security number, which Doe is accused of using to obtain identification documents.
With those documents, Doe was reportedly able to get a badge at Jaxport that allowed him access to secure areas, such as the Blount Island Marine Terminal.
He was already in custody on fraud charges when arrested on the above federal charges. He was in court Oct. 25 for his first appearance, and has been ordered held until the charges are resolved.
The charges carry a sentence between 6 and 31 years in federal prison.
O'Neill also said in the news release, "As of yet, law enforcement has not affirmatively identified John Doe."
