Ocean Township Fake ID Charges Lawyer

An Ocean Township man was arrested Friday in a joint investigation of a fake ID scam, the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office said.

The man, Lucio Medina-Sanchez, was charged with three counts of second-degree manufacturing and sale of fraudulent government documents, Prosecutor Peter E. Warshaw Jr. said in a prepared statement.

According to Warshaw’s statement, Medina-Sanchez, 36, would use passport-size photos of his “customers,” along with a name and birth date, and create fake identification documents for sale. The county, as well as the Department of Homeland Security and local police, executed a search warrant on his Aldrin Road home Thursday morning and seized computers, laminates and other materials used to create the fakes, Warshaw said.

Medina-Sanchez was charged the following day. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years on each count, Warshaw said.

Medina-Sanchez is being held in the Monmouth County Jail, Freehold Township, in lieu of $250,000 bail. The Prosecutor’s Office declined to release his photo.
