ST. LOUIS, Mo. — A routine traffic stop in St. Charles County two weeks ago has set federal agents on the trail of some kind of international intrigue they do not yet fully understand.

It started Aug. 6 on Interstate 70, when St. Charles County sheriff's deputies stopped a black BMW suspected of speeding. The driver, Constatin Puiu, offered a Utah drivers license and told deputies he was returning home from Florida.
