LANCASTER, S.C. - A Lancaster man is in jail, accused of selling fake IDs.
Officers from the South Carolina's new Immigration Enforcement Unit made the arrest.
Officials said Prudencio Cervantes sold fake documents.
The investigation started several weeks ago after deputies arrested a woman at the DMV for presenting fake documents, officials said.
Cervantes' friend said it's a misunderstanding.
"He would bend over backwards to help anybody and that's what he was basically trying to do," Pat Gibson said. "But he wasn't trying to do anything illegal."
Officials said Cervantes could face more charges on Wednesday.
