Not good counterfeits: Police said a counterfeit Social Security card found in Esteban Alferes-Valle’s wallet Saturday had misspelled words on it while a counterfeit state ID card failed to include the state seal. So Alferes-Valle, of the 600 block of Ludlow Avenue in Elgin, was charged with two felony counts of possession of a false identification, as well as misdemeanor possession of 10 to 30 grams of cannabis and driving with a revoked license. Police said Alferes-Valle first got into trouble at about 11 p.m. when his car was stopped at Channing and Stella streets for allegedly turning without using his turn signal.

Inside truck: Anton S. Grossi, 51, of the 1700 block of Berkley Street, Elgin, was charged with criminal trespass Saturday afternoon after police said someone saw him and another man “checking doors” on trucks parked in the 400 block of South McLean Boulevard. Police said that when they arrived, the other man ran away but Grossi was found inside one of the trucks. Police said he told them he had been living in the parked truck’s cab for three months.
