On Jan. 18 the man met with a number of people who were not legally in the U.S. at the state Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles service center, 725 Airport-Pulling Road S., East Naples, to aid them in obtaining fraudulent driver licenses, according to detectives. He requested money and passports from each victim and then drove away in a dark blue Ford Expedition.
