After speaking with the driver, Nelson M. Edmee, 25, Brooklyn, N.Y., Dravigne became wary and decided to investigate further.
In doing so he located a Nesquik container with a false compartment. Inside the can were two fraudulent driver's licences, seven fake credit cards and 82 counterfeit $100 travelers checks.
Receipts found in the rental vehicle appeared to indicate that various items had been purchased using fraudulent traveler's checks.
Edmee was incarcerated in the Putnam County Jail and charged with forgery, a class C felony, indentity deception and fraud, D felonies, and counterfeit government issued identification, A misdemeanor.
His bond was set at $20,000 with no 10 percent.
Edmee was traveling from Brooklyn to Denver, Colo.
U.S. Secret Service agents were sent to the Putnamville Post and assisted with the examination and determination of the false documents.
"This is yet another example of what troopers encounter during 'routine' traffic stops and the subsequent value of this (crash causation) enforcement effort," Sergeant Joe Watts said.
