PHOENIX (AP) -

Arizona authorities say a 32-year-old man sought in Illinois has been jailed after facial recognition technology detected that he was using his brother's identity to apply for a driver's license.

The Arizona Department of Transportation said Luis Castro of Glendale was arrested Tuesday after he went to a state office to pick up a license under the name of his brother.

The department said facial recognition technology had noted that Castro's license application photo didn't match a previous one for his brother but that investigators then found that the application photo matched an Illinois one for Castro.

Castro was arrested on suspicion of forgery and a Cook County warrant for aggravated assault, aggravated robbery and prohibited possessor of firearms.

Castro doesn't have an attorney who could comment on the allegations.
