A man wanted on fraud charges did something quite drastic to evade capture.

He turned into a woman.

The Attorney General's Office says Aaron Vera Morales "had plastic surgery in an effort to evade justice, to change his identity from a man to a woman."

The office said Wednesday the 33-year-old was carrying documents with his new identity.

Vera Morales is charged with defrauding a government health agency on a sound system contract. It is not clear if he has an attorney yet.

Mexico City law allows people to legally change gender identity, and Vera Morales does not face any false ID charges. Officials could not say whether the man had surgery to alter his gender or simply to alter his appearance.
