Anthony Johnson, CC ’13, was arrested on Tuesday after a package he ordered containing 42 fake IDs was intercepted in Lerner. Spec reports that he went into the scheme with a group of friends, who each ordered two cards. He has been suspended from school until his court date in June, and charged with 42 counts of Criminal Possession of a Forged Instrument in the Second Degree. Johnson is quoted as saying at the time of his arraignment, “I ordered the IDs online because there’s a lot of places around school where you need to be 21.”
Spec also reports that fake IDs are common among students. More on the story tomorrow!
