Fake passports and driving licences bearing a photograph of a Suffolk man were found in the boot of a Range Rover during a police raid at a garage in Lowestoft, it has been alleged.
The three passports and three photocard driving licences were all in different names but all had a photograph of 65-year-old Terrance Freeland, of Mill Road, Badingham near Woodbridge on them, Ipswich Crown Court was told.
Freeland has denied six offences of possessing identity documents on November 21 last year with improper intention and one offence of handling a stolen passport.
Hugh Vass, prosecuting said the documents were found in a Range Rover during an unconnected police raid at a garage in Lowestoft on November 21 last year.
“All of them had different names but the same photograph. The police formed the view they were false documents being used by the defendant,” said Mr Vass,
He said the issue in the case was whether or not Freeland was in possession of the identity documents with improper intent.
Freeland was arrested but made no comment during a police interview .
The trial continues today (Wed).
