Two Beaufort County men are accused of making fake ID cards, resident alien cards, selling phony drivers licenses and trafficking in stolen identities.
Officers with the Alcohol Law Enforcement Division say the fake cards were being sold to illegal immigrants.
Oscar Gonzalez and Alberto Salazar were arrested last Friday by sheriff deputies. They say their investigation began when investigators bought fake identifications from the two men.
Deputies say they found out that the fake IDs were being made at Gonzalez's home on Carrow Drive in Washington. There they found and seized computers, printers and laminating machines.
The 40-year-old Gonzlez and the 21-year-old Salazar are both in jail on $21,000 secured bonds.
