A Brampton home was being used as a base to make counterfeit documents such as passports and health cards, say police in Durham Region.
An investigation by the department’s Financial Crimes Unit led to a raid at a home on Bernadino St. last month where they say a fully functional credit card and identification operation was discovered along with hundreds of fake documents.
Police seized equipment and phoney documents that also included credit cards and drivers licenses.
Chukwudi Okeke, 41, of Brampton has been charged with:
- Fraud under $5,000
- Two counts of possession of property obtained by crime
- Possession of a counterfeit mark
- Possession of forgery equipment
- Possession of identity documents
He was released on an Undertaking to adhere to certain conditions.
