Police confiscated 85 phony driver's licenses Thursday morning from a home in Rohnert Park and they arrested a 22-year-old man.

Officers say people from across the state were getting fake IDs from the suspect.

"It's pretty serious. One thing parents have to keep in mind is that he was making these things and he was mailing them to the people's houses, to the houses of the people who bought them. You might want to check the mail," says Orinda Police Department Sgt. Andre Charles.

Orinda Police got the suspect's name during their investigation into last month's death of 16-year-old Joseph Loudon, who died during an underage drinking party.

Police say the teens used fake ID's to buy the alcohol and it's possible they got those ID's from this suspect.
