Deputies raid Phoenix business in ID theft probe

Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies have made 14 arrests during a raid at a west Phoenix business where workers were suspected of identity theft.

Sheriff’s spokesman Deputy Aaron Douglas says investigators received information that a meat packing plant was hiring illegal immigrants using fake identities to get jobs. Douglas says the raid targeted 15 suspects.

The sheriff’s office frequently raids workplaces in the greater Phoenix area looking for people in the U.S. illegally. They target workers who use false IDs to obtain work.
