INGLEWOOD, CA—Making and selling forged identification documents is a tricky business, with all the anti-forgery devices conceived by the powers that be.
Stephanie Morales, 21, and Christopher George Rios, 22, were arrested by officers of the Inglewood Police Department (IPD) on Thursday, March 19 at approximately 10:55 p.m. The couple were picked up along the 10800 block of South Hawthorne Boulevard in Lennox, an unincorporated area patrolled by IPD.
Morales was charged with driving with a suspended license (14601.1AVC), manufacturing and/or selling identification similar to a driver’s license (14610(A)(3)VC), theft of over $950 using an access card (484(G)PC), obtaining another person’s credit card without the owner’s permission (530.5(A)PC), receiving known stolen property (496(A)PC), and making/passing along fictitious checks (476PC).
Rios was charged with possession of a device for use with controlled substances (11364(A)HS), possession of less than 28.5 grams of marijuana (11357(B)HS) and failure to present identification (40302(A)VC).
The total bail for Morales was set at $27,400. Bail for Rios was much lower at $1,035.
Perhaps next time they’ll present proper I.D. so they can quickly be on their way with whatever illicit intent, drug paraphernalia and forged goods they may have on their persons.
