Two Charlotte residents remain jailed Thursday after being arrested earlier this week and charged with making fake identification cards.
The N.C. Department of Motor Vehicles says its inspectors arrested Ingrid Ramirez Ayala, 18, and Isacc Perez Guzman, 27, on Monday afternoon at a home in the 400 block of Milburn Court. That is in a neighborhood off Moores Chapel Road in west Charlotte.
Authorities say the two were charged with eight felonies and seven misdemeanors, and investigators allege the two ran a document lab from the Milburn Court residence.
The arrests followed a two-month investigation, according to the DMV, and they say agents from the Department of Homeland Security also were involved in the case.
Authorities say each was charged with three counts of common law forgery; two counts of manufacturing a counterfeit government identification card; one count of manufacturing a counterfeit driver license; and one count of selling a counterfeit driver license. In addition, authorities say, Ayala was charged with resisting arrest.
In addition to the arrests, Immigration and Customs Enforcement has asked for detainers on the two suspects, according to the DMV.
