(Stillwater, Okla.) — In a case made by Homeland Security Investigations, a 46-year-old Glencoe woman has been charged in Payne County District Court with offering to sell fictitious identification cards between May 7 and June 11.
If convicted of possessing and offering to sell Lawful Permanent Resident cards known as I-551 and Social Security cards, Sara Lopez De Saldivar could be given as much as a seven-year prison term and a $10,000 fine, court records show.
De Saldivar was arrested on the Payne County felony charge on July 1 and freed the same day on $10,000 bail, court records show. De Saldivar appeared in court with an interpreter on July 7 and was ordered to return to court with an attorney for arraignment today.
Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent Aaron O’Dell alleged in an affidavit that on May 7 through a confidential informant he placed an order for a fraudulent Lawful Permanent Resident card and a Social Security card.
“Sara Lopez De Saldivar confirmed receiving the order,” on May 7, the affidavit alleged.
“On June 7, 2021, Special Agent O’Dell received information through a confidential informant that the documents were ready for pick up at La Huasteca,” which is a grocery store at the Cimarron Plaza shopping center, the affidavit alleged.
“On June 11, 2021, at approximately 11:40 hrs., federal agents executed a federal search warrant for fraudulent documents at La Huasteca, 1502 Cimarron Plaza, Stillwater, Oklahoma,” the affidavit alleged.
“During the search, agents discovered three fraudulent I-551’s (Lawful Permanent Resident cards) and three fraudulent Social Security cards,” the affidavit alleged.
