Two men accused of having forged documents

Two Austin men are accused of having several state and federal documents in their possession that allegedly had aliases on them. The men reportedly used the aliases at their jobs.

Isaias Bautista-Hernandez, 61, and Rigoberto Hernandez-Espinoza, 23, each are accused of two counts of aggravated forgery, a felony, and one count of using false writing, which is also a felony.

Both men appeared in Mower County District Court on Thursday, and conditional bail was set at $10,000 and unconditional bail was set at $50,000.

According to the criminal complaints, Austin police searched 607 Eighth Ave. N.W. on Aug. 10. Both men had Mexico Matricula Consular cards and Mexican voter registrations that showed their true identities. Police reportedly found documents from Austin Packaging Co. in the trash.

APC provided police with photographs that matched the defendants, as well as I-9 and W-4 forms, Social Security cards and employee applications for both men under aliases, the complaint said.
