Driver's License Scam

Albuquerque – A Brazilian man has been charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit a felony after being accused of trying to get driver's licenses for two other men.

KRQE television in Albuquerque reports that state police allege Cristian Sobral was paid $3,000 by two other Brazilian men to fly them to New Mexico from New Jersey.

State police say Sobral was trying to get driver's licenses for the men Friday afternoon at a state Motor Vehicle Division office in Albuquerque, using a city address.

A Taxation and Revenue agent remembered seeing Sobral at the office with different people a couple of times over the past year.

The other two men are charged with forgery.

All three remained jailed Monday in the Bernalillo County Metropolitan Detention Center.
