Prosecutors said a Westchester County woman was busted with a pile of fake COVID-19 vaccination cards after she was caught driving a car with a fake license plate.
Westchester District Attorney Mimi Roca said in a statement that Diana Finley, 53, a Mount Vernon resident, was arrested in Harrison after police noticed a temporary New Jersey registration tag on her car.
After Finlay’s arrest on September 23, police found 21 fake vaccination cards and three more fake temporary registration tags, Roca said.
The DA said he was presented Tuesday in Harrison Town Court on five counts of criminal possession of a counterfeit device.
“The District Attorney’s office will vigorously investigate and prosecute anyone who buys, possesses, manufactures or sells counterfeit vaccination cards,” Roca said in a statement.
“The health and safety of the public is our top priority, and we will not tolerate conduct that puts individuals at risk of the serious effects of COVID-19. Our investigation is ongoing and anyone who may have pertinent information about anyone who may be possessing or selling counterfeit vaccination cards is asked to contact our office.”
