Rafael Mora-Lopez

Country of origin: Mexico

A Mexican national illegally in the U.S. stole another man's identity and went on to become a police officer in Alaska, authorities said Friday.


He said Mora-Lopez was considered a popular swing-shift officer who was respected by peers and others in the criminal justice system.

His arrest, conducted about 24 hours after case emerged, was a "bitter pill to swallow" for many in the police department, Mew said.

"His reputation here is one of a hard-working officer, one who was very professional," he said. "The problem, obviously, is he is not Rafael Espinoza."
