A teenager will appear in court tomorrow accused of making
and selling fake ID cards.
The 17-year-old youth was arrested in north Canterbury on
Friday night after police spoke to another 17-year-old caught
using a fake ID to get into a bar, Constable Hamish Fair
"As a result it became clear that that someone was
manufacturing and selling the cards," Mr Fair said.
The accused teen was to appear in Christchurch District Court
tomorrow on a charges of making a false document and
intending to use it for pecuniary advantage.
Mr Fair said he believed there were still a number of the
cards in circulation and warned anyone using a fake ID that
they were committing an offence and faced arrest.
"We advise anybody who has one of these fake cards that now
is a good time to hand it in to police. If anyone hands in a
fake card voluntarily they will not face charges."
