NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
The Academy of Personal Protection and Security, a background check company in Nashville, led police to arrest five people that were working in Tennessee illegally with fraudulent licenses.
The Jolly Roofing Company, based out of Collierville, received a roofing job with Davidson County to place new roofs on local schools in Nashville.
Due to a requirement by the state, the roofing company had to provide background checks of all the employees working on the project.
An employee of the background check company said numerous employees from the roofing company provided what appeared to be fraudulent Tennessee driver's licenses.
Police spoke with the company's controller and he willingly gave all of his employee files to authorities.
Upon reviewing the information, police noticed at least eight of the employees had fraudulent licenses on their files.
Then during a traffic stop Wednesday, five of those employees were stopped, and authorities compared their IDs to files provided by the roofing company.
The identification comparison of each individual revealed a different name, date of birth, and social security number.
The employees were then transported to the Department of Homeland Security and interviewed.
Julio Camey, William Figeroa-Rames, Melvin Orreoro, Mauro Prras-Muj and another individual who has yet to be identified reportedly admitted to Homeland Security investigators that they entered the United States without authorization.
