Man charged with selling fake documents

Authorities say a Nashville man has been arrested for allegedly selling fake government documents.

Morristown Police busted an illegal document mill on March 18th for the second time in eight weeks. Four men were arrested.

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Authorities say a Nashville man has been arrested for allegedly selling fake government documents.

Jose Luis Hernandez-Juarez, 21, is being held in the Putnam County Jail on $100,000 bond, according to the Cookeville Herald-Citizen.

A warrant says the investigation has focused on "a complaint of someone selling permanent resident cards that are purported to be issued by the Department of Homeland Security."

The warrant alleges that Hernandez-Juarez has been making fraudulent documents since last October.

Authorities believe he created the documents in Nashville and sold them in the Putnam and Warren counties areas. The investigation is ongoing, and other charges could be filed.
