Most college dorms barely have enough room for two beds and two desks. It’s hard to imagine having enough room to run a business.
But three University of Georgia students apparently found a way. The trio is facing dozens of felony charges for allegedly producing fake identification cards to sell to underage students.
Following a tip from another roommate, investigators found several phony IDs, a laminating machine and other materials in a room in the East Campus Village. One student was apparently making the IDs and his two friends helped sell them.
“I think at this age, you never think you’re going to get caught,” UGA police Chief Jimmy Williamson told Channel 2 Action News.
But they did get caught, and this ring is believed to be small in comparison to a larger one currently under investigation.
Are fake IDs a part of college, or should university officials continue to crack down on dorm businesses like this?
