AZ: Identity theft, forgery arrests

Mike Sakal reports:

An alleged identity theft and forgery ring was disrupted in southeast Phoenix this week after deputies from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office executed warrants at two residences and arrested five illegal immigrants from Mexico.

Two of the ring leaders, Eduardo Chavez-Elizalde, 33, and Federerico Velasco-Lopez, 33, were arrested on suspicion of identity-theft-related offenses and are accused of providing forms of fake identification to help other illegal immigrants gain employment, according to the sheriff’s office.
