Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Federal agents raided a home in Las Vegas on Friday after discovering fraudulent ID cards were being sold from the residence.
Authorities said they received a tip last week regarding fake social security cards and licenses being sold out of the home, located on Walnut Street near Bruce and Bonanza.
An undercover agent went to the home and purchased a fraudulent social security card in about 20 minutes.
The fake social security cards were being sold for $500, and drivers' licenses were going for between $200 and $300.
A woman was arrested in connection with the operation. She faces charges for identity theft and operating a forgery lab.
More arrests could follow as the investigation continues.
