Pleasanton police arrest 25-year-old on charge of distributing fake drivers' licenses

Special unit used search warrant to seize evidence in San Ramon home

Pleasanton police arrested a 25-year-old San Ramon man Wednesday on suspicion of producing fake driver's licenses that investigators believe were distributed to minors all over the state.

Roberto Palo Aguilar of San Ramon was allegedly in possession of three fake California driver's licenses when he was arrested by members of a Pleasanton police special enforcement unit, police said. Officers obtained a search warrant for his home and allegedly located computers, printers, a laminator, a card cutter and other items used to produce fake IDs, according to police.

Police said that based on the volume of items found in his home, Aguilar likely produced hundreds of fake driver's licenses for youth throughout the state.

Anyone with additional information regarding the case is asked to call Pleasanton police at (925) 931-5170.
