PLATTE COUNTY, Mo. — Platte County prosecutors filed charges on Monday against a man accused of having several forms of identification located inside his carry-on luggage.

Yongho Nehiefung, 30, is charged in Platte County with identity theft for his alleged actions.

According to court documents, on Oct. 4, airport security conducted a secondary screening of Nehiefung’s carry-on luggage, containing a laptop, because it set off an alarm for possible explosives. In conducting a search, they found several fake driver’s licenses. Nehiefung admitted the licenses were his and said he used them to get into clubs and bars.
