Queens Men Used Bogus IDs In East Garden City, Say Cops

Two Queens men were arrested earlier this week for committing forgery-related offenses at an East Garden City DMV and multiple banks, the Nassau County police Crimes Against Property Squad said.

According to detectives, Narendra Mukhia, 59, of 53rd Ave., Elmhurst, used stolen, fraudulent identification—including a social security card and passport in another person’s name—for the purpose of obtaining a fraudulent New York State Identification Card Feb. 16 at the state Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) office in East Garden City. The bogus IDs were allegedly provided to Mukhia by Shamim Ahmed, 35, of 75th St., Woodhaven, say detectives.


Subsequently, using the false identification, the duo made fraudulent bank deposits and withdrawals, which caused more than $28,000 in losses to multiple banks, according to detectives.

State DMV Investigators apprehended Mukhia in connection with the Feb. 16 incident Wednesday. An ensuing investigation led to he and Ahmed’s arrests.

Both have been charged with 1st Degree Tampering with Public Records (D Felony), 2nd Degree Forgery, and Offering a False Instrument. Ahmed is also charged with eight additional counts of 2nd Degree Possession of a Forged Instrument (counterfeit checks).

The pair will be arraigned Saturday at First District Court in Hempstead.
