GRETNA, La. (BRPROUD) — A Louisiana man is facing 211 counts of forgery after allegedly issuing fraudulent driving school certificates.

The Louisiana State Police (LSP) began investigating the case back in March when suspected fake certificates were being submitted to the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles.

Through investigation, LSP detectives found that a man, identified as 56-year-old Prentiss Martin of New Orleans, was operating a business named “Professional Legal Services” in Gretna.

A search warrant was conducted by LSP at the business where authorities found various items consistent with creating bogus documents.

On Thursday, Martin was arrested and booked into the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center, according to LSP.
