MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — More than 50 people have now been cited for fake ID violations in Morgantown since late October.
The Morgantown Police Department and Alcohol Beverage Control Administration (ABC) cited an additional 20 people over the weekend, increasing the total to 51.
The citation carries a $500 fine and a mandatory suspension of driving privileges. Offenses include displaying or possessing a fictitious or altered identification, loaning or giving identification to another person for any unlawful or fraudulent purpose, or displaying/representing any identification not issued to the person in possession.
Morgantown Police Chief Ed Preston said previously that bar owners, the ABC, and his department were interested in tighter enforcement — particularly in light of more realistic fake identification cards coming from outside the country.
