Federal officers seized over 3,000 fake driver’s licenses along with more than 3,100 blank card stock used to create counterfeit licenses in Kentucky, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has said.

The IDs were heading from China to various locations in the US, including New York, according to the federal agency.

The CBP added that the fake driver’s licenses were seized at an Express Consignment Operations hub in Louisville, Ky.

  • Ohio

CBP officers were notified by authorities in Louisville since the cards were also shipped to that area, which resulted in an additional 527 counterfeit driver’s licenses in Tennessee, according to officials.

Investigators suspect that the individual entices minors lures minors with alcohol and fake IDs in order to engage illegal activity.

Homeland Security is investigating the issue, according to reports.

“Some of the major concerns as it relates to fraudulent identity documents is identity theft, worksite enforcement, critical infrastructure protection, fraud linked to immigration-related crimes such as human smuggling and human trafficking, and these documents can be used by those individuals associated with terrorism to minimize scrutiny from travel screening measures,” Mahn said.
