Colorado is cracking down on fake passports.

The state has charged fourteen people with passport fraud in the last year. Two of those people are from Garfield County, one from Silt and one from Rifle.

The US Attorney for Colorado says the defendants were acting separately and used either false names or gave fake documents at post offices.

They were arrested or surrendered to Federal authorities.

The US Attorney says since the fourteen were taken into custody, they've plead guilty to fraud or similar charges.

Passport fraud is punishable by up to ten years in prison.
