Seven cited in fake ID ring
Authorities: Effort fueled drug habits
Dustin Plummer
The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office has arrested seven people suspected of taking part in a ring that produced fraudulent IDs and checks. It appears the group manufactured fake identification cards and checks to withdraw money that they then used to buy drugs, said Doug Rainwater, spokesman for the sheriff’s office. According to Rainwater, those involved were using bank account information stolen from companies to make fake checks on a printer in the business name to an individual.
