RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – North Carolina officials say there’s a booming business in fake identification that’s growing in size and sophistication.
The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Friday that the state Department of Motor Vehicles made more arrests for driver’s license fraud in the first 10 months of this year than all of last year.
The state Alcohol Law Enforcement Division closed a document lab in a Beaufort County mobile home park a week ago. State and local police also shut down an operation in south Charlotte last week. Two months ago, agents busted operations in Forest City and
Gastonia that were churning out fake driver’s licenses for six states, Social Security cards, resident alien cards and birth certificates.
