CARBONDALE – Two Carbondale men have been arrested on charges of making and selling forged immigration and Social Security cards in Eagle County.

The sheriff’s department says a detective posing as an illegal immigrant bought fake documents from 41-year-old Sergio Edwin Garcia Carranza on Wednesday.

Authorities say detectives raided a location in Carbondale and seized cash, fake cards and $2,000 worth of equipment allegedly used to make fake cards. Deputies arrested 30-year-old Victor Daniel Vazquez Cortes.



The men are being held on suspicion of forgery and possession of forged instruments, both felonies.

Both are being held in lieu of $5,000 bond each.




Jail officials say they don’t keep records on inmates’ attorneys.

The sheriff’s department says a tip from a resident led to the arrests.
