Two people have been arrested and 22 more are being sought because their photos have shown on up on fake Illinois driver's licenses shipped to Cedar Falls from China.

A package with 24 fake licenses had been spotted and then scanned by the Department of Homeland Security when the package arrived in Chicago. Cedar Falls police were tipped, and the two University of Northern Iowa students were arrested after the package was delivered.

The students and several others apparently had sent photos, signatures, descriptions and money to an offshore fake ID factory.

Police are searching for the individuals pictured in the 22 other bogus licenses. Once found they could face criminal charges, too.
