Woman busted for allegedly selling fake documents to illegals.

EDINBURG - An Edinburg woman was arrested for trying to sell fake citizenship documents to illegals.

Alamo and Donna police charged Jennifer Lee Martinez with five counts of theft. They say she posed as an immigration department employee and promising papers to undocumented immigrants.

The victims allegedly paid her thousands of dollars. Police tell us Martinez was also running a furniture scam. We're told she took money for used furniture but never delivered it.

If you were a victim of these scams, you're asked to call Alamo police at 787-1454.
