Raleigh, N.C. — A Raleigh man has been charged with making and selling fake identification documents, according to authorities.
Elmer Salamanca, of 3609 Cove Drive, was arrested Monday during an undercover sting by the state Division of Motor Vehicles.
An informant told agents with the DMV's License and Theft Bureau he knew someone who could provide phony IDs. After agents were able to purchase one, they discovered what they described as a document lab in Raleigh.
According to a search warrant, they seized a Dell laptop with software to produce fraudulent state and federal IDs, a data storage device with hundreds of fraudulent records, card stock, a printer and four fake IDs.
Salamanca was being held Friday in the Wake County jail under a $10,000 bond.
