HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) -- An illegal immigrant in Butler County was arrested on Wednesday after she walked into the Sheriff's Office looking to apply for a job.

Police say Genesis Mahelet Garcia-Garcia, 25, wanted to obtain a background check for the purpose of gaining employment. He went to the public assistance window and filled out the paperwork using a fraudulent name and date of birth. She then passed a fraudulent Illinois Identification Card and Social Security Card to the clerk. The clerk immediately recognized the cards as fraudulent.

Garcia was questioned about the cards and admitted to purchasing them for $180 two years ago, then essentially assuming the identity of the individual.

She now faces two counts of forgery and one count of identity fraud. She was booked into the Butler County Jail, but faces deportation back to Mexico after she answers to her state charges.
