DONALDSONVILLE, LA (NBC33) — A mother and son have been arrested for allegedly producing and selling fake motor vehicle inspection stickers.
The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office reports that the investigation was launched after deputies issued over 100 citations involving fake motor vehicle inspection stickers. They were all located in the Donaldsonville and surrounding areas.
“Detectives began an investigation and learned through several witnesses that fake motor vehicle inspection stickers were being sold by a mother and son from Geismar,” Allison Hudson, Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office, said.
Deputies had enough probably cause to execute a search.
Alphalia Hernandez, 62, was arrested and charged with Forgery of Motor Vehicle Inspection Cerfiticates (19 counts).
Kelly Williams, 31, was arrested and is facing the same charge, but has 120 counts against him.
Both were booked into the Ascension Parish Jail. Bond has not been set at this time.
If your inspection sticker is expired, that could cost you more than $100, and if you have a fake one, you could face jail time.
