30 Charged in 9-state Fake ID Ring

December 17, 2010

Thirty people are charged in Virginia with running a fake identification ring that spanned nine states. Several of the defendants were arraigned Thursday before U.S. District Judge James Spencer in Richmond.

An indictment unsealed this week alleges that Israel Cruz Millan supervised "document production cells" in Virginia, Rhode Island, Arkansas, Kentucky, Indiana, Massachusetts, Tennessee, North Carolina and Ohio.

Cruz Millan and his associates are accused of manufacturing and distributing fake green cards, Social Security cards, out-of-state ID cards and various international documents. Sixteen of the defendants are charged with money laundering as well as the false ID conspiracy.

Cruz Millan's attorneys did not immediately return phone messages.
