Alleged ringleaders sought in NM driver’s license fraud By The Associated Press Posted: 07/24/2013 07:42:34 AM MDT
CLOVIS – Arrest warrants have been issued for a Mexican couple who allegedly led a ring that obtained hundreds of people
living outside the United States to fraudulently obtain New Mexico’s driver’s licenses. According to the Albuquerque Journal (http://bit.ly/14Hfw8B ), District Attorney Matthew Chandler of Clovis says 53-year-
old Luis Raul Collazo-Medrano and his wife, Olivia Campos, may have returned to Mexico but also have ties to Texas,
Louisiana and Ohio.
Meanwhile, a 38-year-old Portales woman has become the fifth person to plead guilty in the New Mexico case. Veronica Diaz
pleaded guilty Monday to 47 counts of forgery and other crimes.
A judge suspended her 70-year prison sentence and placed her on five years of supervised probation after Diaz agreed to
testify in the case.
