Sacramento men arrested for forgery of green cards

Two Sacramento residents have been arrested on suspicion of selling counterfeit IDs.

Laurel Velasquez, 30, and Pedro Izehuatl, 45, were arrested after a four-month investigation by the California Department of Justice. They are suspected of selling counterfeit driver's licenses, green cards and a social security card.

During the investigation, special agents conducted an undercover operation during which they purchased dozens of counterfeit federal green cards. Driver's licenses and a social security card were bought from Velasquez for $100 each.

Equipment used to make the counterfeit documents was seized, according to a DOJ press release.
