DMV Worker Arrested for Driver's License Fraud

A woman accused of recuriting illegal immigrants to pay thousands of dollars for fake driver’s licenses is in jail in Henderson today.

State and federal investigators have arrested a Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles technician who allegedly issued more than 200 Nevada driver’s licenses illegally.

Nancy P. Brown of Las Vegas, 28 years old, is accused of receiving compensation ranging from $1,500 to $3,000 for each license.

Brown was arrested May 5 at the Caesars Palace Hotel and Casino, and was booked into the Henderson jail. She faces federal charges of Fraud and Theft or Bribery. Brown worked at the DMV branch on Sahara Ave. in Las Vegas and has been with the department since 2007.

Investigators with the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles' Compliance Enforcement Division, U.S. Attorney’s Office and Homeland Security Investigations say Brown worked with a series of middlemen outside the DMV to recruit immigrants and accept payments. Information gathered from the department’s Facial Recognition and Fraud Monitoring System initiated the investigation which is ongoing.

The fraudulent driver’s licenses are being cancelled. The DMV will send certified letters to the license holders and is alerting other licensing agencies through the national Problem Driver Pointer System.
