A northeast Kansas woman is accused of making and selling hundreds of counterfeit driver’s licenses, resident alien cards and other identity documents over a three-year period.

The U.S. Attorney’s office says 29-year-old Lluvia Fernanda Salinas-Rodriguez was indicted Wednesday on charges of trafficking in identity documents and fraud. The indictment replaces a criminal complaint filed last week against the Kansas City, Kan., resident.

Investigators allege Salinas-Rodriguez used a computer and printer to scan photos and produce counterfeit identity documents, which also included Social Security cards. The charges allege she sold two sets of documents a week for roughly three years, at $80 to $100 apiece.

Salinas-Rodriguez did not have a lawyer Wednesday, and a phone number for her could not be found.
