Brockton: Police arrest man with numerous aliases, and long list of alleged crimes

State Police have arrested a man this week they believe goes by at least a dozen names, is wanted on a string of charges and is in the U.S. illegally.

The man was stopped by a State Police Trooper on I-95 southbound in Wakefield while he was walking away from a vehicle with fresh damage. He identified himself as “Willie Rosa”, and produced documents to match.

When police attempted to fingerprint him, they found his fingertips has been deliberately altered. They were able to obtain some usable prints however, and identified him as Lorenzo Echevacia, a former prison inmate from Brockton. They discovered the man also has a dozen aliases, and 10 warrants out against him–mostly felonies.

Rosa was arrested for operating a motor vehicle without a license and providing false motor vehicle documents.

Further investigation revealed that Echevacia had been deported in 2004 and was back in the country illegally.
