An East Naples man is accused of selling fraudulent IDs to people without legal residency documentation.
In early June, an undercover Collier County sheriff's deputy called telephone numbers provided by a victim, and discussed purchasing a permanent resident card and Social Security card from the man who answered the phone, later identified as Hermilo Solis-Fernandez, 29. He instructed the deputy to text him a passport-type photo for the ID and meet him at a local gas station the next day, according to an arrest report.
The deputy met with Solis-Fernandez and purchased the fraudulent documents for $150, reports said.
Solis-Fernandez sold the same documents to a second undercover deputy in early July, reports said. During that transaction Solis-Fernandez agreed to sell additional documents to the deputy's friends at a discount.
Deputies located Solis-Fernandez on Thursday and arrested him. Solis-Fernandez, of the 200 block of Taft Street, faces charges of knowingly selling, manufacturing or delivering a forged ID card.
