Added: (Thu Feb 16 2012)

Pressbox (Press Release) - Four college students from the USA have been arrested in connection with the production and supply of fake ID cards. The four students had been producing the fake ID cards that included a Californian fake drivers licence to fellow students at the college. City College has a reputation for its party atmosphere, with many of the local residence very unhappy about the uncontrollable teenagers that are drinking to the early hours. Detectives searched the house in Sueno Road, Isla Vista USA after a long investigation on the four College students that were arrested. The warrant to search the property on Sueno Road had been obtained by county sheriff deputies and detectives that were investigating the case.

One of the City College students Kotarou Maruyma who is twenty one years of age was arrested at the house. Maruyma has been charged with a number of criminal offences including having a fake drivers licence, selling fake ID cards, criminal conspiracy along with possession of the class A drug cocaine. Maruyma was searched and was found to have a number of fake drivers licences on him. The police had obviously caught him before he had managed to distribute them to his customers. Maruyma is currently waiting bail, unfortunately for him to get bail will cost his family and friends $20,000.

Whilst searching the shared house in Sueno Road the police found all of the equipment required to produce fake drivers licences. This included a credit card printer, blank plastic ID cards, scanner and a number of computers used to create the fake ID cards. The detectives were also lucky enough to find a number of narcotics on their search of the premises. This included marijuana, cocaine, steroids and adderall, adderall is a prescription drug that contains amphetamines normally prescribed to people with a chemical imbalance in their brain that makes them behave badly.

Maruyma’s house mates were also arrested, Yuujirou Maruyama, 19 has been arrested for criminal conspiracy, possession of drugs and using a PC to commit fraud. Camden Hersherberger was arrested for possessing a fake drivers licence and for the possession of adderall. And Anthony Ugas was arrested for possessing a fake drivers licence and possession of steroids. These 3 have been let out and handed over to the district attorney who will decide their fate. Kotarou Maruyma was the only one to be kept behind bars until his bail had been paid.
