Man accused of possessing 30 fake IDs, $55k in tax refund checks
DAVIDSON COUNTY, N.C. — A Georgia man is facing several charges after he was stopped for speeding and officers found him to be in possession of fake IDs, refund checks and bundles of cash.
Officers with the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office Interstate Criminal Enforcement Unit stopped a 2014 Ford Taurus Tuesday night for going 76 mph in a 70 mph on I-85.
The driver, David Bradshaw of Decatur, Ga., was the only person in the vehicle.
After receiving a positive alert of an odor of narcotics from a K-9 scan, officers searched the vehicle.
Officers found and seized 11 bundles of U.S. currency in an undisclosed amount, 30 forms of fraudulent IDs from the state of Georgia bearing the same photograph of a black female but 30 different names and 30 tax refund checks issued by the United States Treasury made payable to the fraudulent names on the IDs.
The recovered checks issued by the United States Treasury totaled $55,226.22.
Bradshaw was arrested and charged with possession/manufacture fraudulent identification.
He was placed in the Davidson County Detention Center under a $150,000 secured bond and is scheduled to appear in court on May 29.
The incident is under further investigation through Homeland Security Instigation.
