Fake IDs Increasing in Delaware

Posted: Updated:

REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.- Authorities say the number of fake IDs being carried by teenagers in Delaware is increasing.

Lt. Kevin Jones of Delaware's Division of Alcohol and Tobacco Enforcement said he is confiscating more and more fake driver's licenses up and down the state, especially at the beaches.

"It's Dewey and the Rehoboth area as well," said Jones. "Mostly the influx of college students."

Jones said some IDs, mostly manufactured in Asia, are becoming nearly identical to state-issued driver's licenses. Some even have exact duplicates of the holograms printed by the DMVs.

At the Dogfish Head Restaurant in Rehoboth, bartender Jonathan Walker said it is becoming increasingly difficult to spot the fakes.

"It get's a lot harder with IDs from other states," said Walker.

According to Jones, the problem will shift to Newark in the coming months, with college students bringing fake IDs to bars in New Castle.
