BOSTON -- A unidentified Leominster man has pleaded guilty in federal court to one count of making false claims in a passport application, according to a statement released by U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling’s office Thursday.

The man who pleaded guilty on Oct. 17 is known only as “John Doe,” according to Lelling’s statement. His true identity and age are “presently unknown” by the U.S. Attorney’s office, however his last known address was in Leominster.

At his most recent plea hearing, Doe admitted to allegations that he entered a Jamaica Plain post office in Dec. 2011 and used the name, date of birth, and Social Security number of a U.S. citizen from Puerto Rico to apply for a U.S. passport.

It wasn’t until April 2018 that Doe was arrested.
