Move over, fake IDs. The new illegal social currency is fake COVID-19 vaccination cards, and a California bar proprietor has been busted for selling them.
Todd Anderson, proprietor of the Old Corner Saloon in Clements, sold the fake cards to spies on different occasions, investigators said.
The fake pandemic travel papers supposedly got just $20, as indicated by officials.
Anderson “was in control of various other unfilled out COVID-19 vaccination cards, an overlaying machine, cover and a few different cards that were done,” said Luke Blehm with the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.
“Also, apparently they were holding on to be given to individuals.”
Anderson is accused of data fraud, producing government reports, and misrepresenting clinical records, investigators said.
The Stockton-territory bar could likewise have its permit suspended or renounced, as indicated by officials.
“It is dispiriting to have individuals locally show glaring negligence for general wellbeing amidst a pandemic,” San Joaquin County District Attorney Tori Verber Salazar said.
