Four people caught with fraudulent work IDs were arrested during a traffic stop Wednesday morning, authorities said Thursday.

Hall County Sheriff’s Lt. Scott Ware said officials with the Hall County Multi-Agency Narcotics Squad had just completed a drug arrest near the Midtown Apartments on Myrtle Street when they spotted a Dodge truck being driven erratically at about 10 a.m. Wednesday. The driver ran several stop signs and was pulled over by plainclothes officers, Ware said.

The men inside the truck presented authorities with identification cards from Gress Foods, but admitted that the names on the cards were not their real names, Ware said.

Roberto Gaytan Cruz, 45, Josue Gomez, 17, Maldanado Sosiz Ibarra, 32, and Jorge Mario Sosa, 23, were charged with second-degree forgery.
