Fake documents at Lake Charles OMV lands two in jail

The following is a Press Release from the Louisiana State Police:

On November 7, 2011, officials with the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles in Lake Charles contacted Louisiana State Police detectives and reported two subjects were attempting to obtain a state-issued driver's license with fraudulent documents. Troopers responded and detained two Hispanic males.

An inspection of the documents by detectives verified they fraudulent.  Troopers arrested 53-year-old Celedonio Gutierrez and 46-year-old Hugo Elizondo, both of Mexico, for injuring public records as well as possession of fraudulent documents.  

Gutierrez and Elizondo were transported to the U.S. Border Patrol office where they were identified by federal agents.  They were then booked into the Calcasieu Parish Correctional Center.  

A hold has been placed on both subjects by the U.S. Border Patrol for being in the country illegally.    

The Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles and the Louisiana State Police will continue to work together to safeguard the integrity of state-issued identification.
