Man accused of selling fake documents in Eagle

EAGLE, Colorado ” A man who sold illegal documents, such as fake social security cards and work visas, has been arrested, the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday.

Jamie Antonio Valencia-Duron, 34, of Gypsum, was arrested Monday after an undercover investigation that began when an anonymous person gave authorities a tip about a person they thought made and sold illegal documents, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Investigators found numerous documents, which Valencia-Duron told authorities he had been making for a year, the Sheriff’s Office said. He had averaged 10 documents a week at $50 apiece in recent months, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Valencia-Duron is out of jail on a $2,500 bond and is scheduled to appear in court July 14, the Sheriff’s Office said.
