Two Madera residents pleaded guilty to manufacturing and selling fake identification documents.
Madera residents Antonio Mora-Cruz, 45, and Soledad Vargas-Herrera, 59, pleaded guilty today to conspiring to produce and sell fake identification documents. Mora-Cruz separately pleaded guilty to being a deported alien found in the United States.
According to their plea agreements, between November and December 2012, Mora-Cruz and Vargas-Herrera produced fake identification documents at a house in Madera.
Customers placed orders for falke documents directly with Mora-Cruz and Vargas-Herrera, who then took photographs and biographical information from the customers and used that information to produce fraudulent social security cards and alien registration cards. Mora-Cruz and Vargas-Herrera then delivered the completed false documents to customers, charging about $120 for a set of false documents.
Mora-Cruz and Vargas-Herrera are scheduled to be sentenced on May 20, 2013.
