Fedelin Pericles known as the "Tag Man" throughout Florida was arrested this week. The 36-year-old sold fake temporary license plates and insurance cards to undercover officers, according to Boyton Beach Police,

Investigators say they received an anonymous tip from a caller who also provided the "tag man's" phone number.

An undercover officer texted Pericles and asked to buy a temporary tag. He replied, wanting the VIN number, car model and color.

They agreed to meet at a store parking lot to exchange money for the fake tag. Pericles was then arrested Wednesday on multiple charges including organized fraud.
