5 Fraudulently Try To Get NM Driver's Licenses

Authorities say five people from Mexico have been arrested for trying to fraudulently obtain New Mexico driver's licenses.

They say the suspects drove from Texas and Oklahoma to get the licenses.

State and federal agents say the suspects falsified residential requirements, including using the Social Security number of a deceased person in one case.

Two of the suspects were arrested Monday and three more on Tuesday.

All were taken into custody by the U.S. Border Patrol and will be deported.
