DMV Says 2 Arrested For Manufacturing Licenses

North Carolina officials say two people have been charged with forgery and manufacturing driver's licenses.

Investigators say their home contained records showing hundreds of fake document sales weekly.

The Division of Motor Vehicles said Tuesday that inspectors arrested 35-year-old Mario Ziranda and 28-year-old Elvis Sanchez of Forest City on Monday night. The agency says a search of their home uncovered licenses from California, Florida, Tennessee, Texas, Ohio and North Carolina.

Investigators also found Social Security cards and a Maryland birth certificate.

    Got news flash for everyone....As a retired DMV employee from Driver License, I know this has been going on for many many years....When this operation ends,another like it will take its place within days and,quite frankly,DMV over the years has overlooked this type of operation again and again....I know for a fact that when an employee points out this type of thing,DMV only wants to cover it up....I'm surprised anything was done about this one.

    Fred, I am with you!!! If the americans wouldn't be so dang demanding about where they are going to work and when they are going to work, then I guess the illegals would have no other choice but to return to their native countries because there would be no more field and farm work, no construction work, nor would there be a need for cheap labor...............

    It is quite easy to get rid of illegal alliens..regardless of what country they are from. Since they are here illegally then all assets were illegally obtained. All money and property should be summarily seized and turned over to the proper state or government enity.

    well americans here in NC are lazy and eveyone of you red***** wants to be a boss so none of you work, that is why they bring in the illegals. And cali was brown way before it was white. Get your facts straight before you comment and get off your fat duff and get to work and we wont have to bring illegals to nc.

    I was raised in North Carolina, and still have family and friends there. Several of my contractor friends there are taking a beating froim cheap, illegal workers. It's a shame to see this happening there. Getting like california. E-verify for all workers, and bring back the chain gang for the illegals.

    I see the illegals are now making false ID's. Comes as no suprise to anyone. Nothing about them being here is legal, so why should they follow the laws we have? The don't and will continue to if not sent back where they belong.
