Two more people are accused of trying to illegally obtain New Mexico driver's licenses.

State Police arrested Carlos Turcios and Manuel Chimbo-Pando Tuesday.

Police said the men came all the way from New York to get the licenses from an Albuquerque Motor Vehicle Division office.

Both men went before a judge Wednesday.

Police said they paid $1,500 each to get fake documents to prove New Mexico residency.

The men face several felony charges.
