Alexander Jesse Lemmon, 20, and Elliot Mashford, 20, have both been charged with knowing or believing a document was forged, and forging by making false IDs. A third suspect was also arrested in the investigation.
Police allege the pair ran a business that allowed people to go online, upload a photo of themselves and get a fake Canadian or U.S. identification. They estimate they delivered 2,000 pieces by hand to by mail for a total revenue of $500,000.
The police were tipped off to the alleged operation by a minor who tried use a piece of the fake ID after being caught with liquor on transit last March.
