A Hesperia woman came into the Hesperia sheriff's station to be fingerprinted for a new job and found herself arrested instead.

Damaris Hernandez, 38, came into the Hesperia station of the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department on Thursday, June 5. She was there to be fingerprinted for employment purposes, but when she handed her driver's license to the clerk, the clerk believed it to be a forged driver's license.

The clerk turned over the license to Deputy Frank Hardin, who allegedly discovered Hernandez also had a fake Social Security card in her possession.

Hernandez was arrested and booked at Victor Valley Jail on charges of passing a fictitious document and signing a false Social Security card.
