A Penngrove man is suspected of running a counterfeit drivers’ license and credit card operation from his home, a Sonoma County sheriff’s lieutenant said this afternoon. Christopher Matheson, 34, was arrested today at his home for a parole violation, Lt. Dennis O’Leary said. After the arrest, detectives got a search warrant for his home and discovered equipment and machinery to produce counterfeit drivers’ licenses and credit cards, O’Leary said.

Matheson also had a supg operation, O’Leary said. Detectives believe Matheson was selling the fraudulent credit cards and using them to purchase items, O’Leary said.”We are in the preliminary stages of this investigation and will be consulting with the DMV and bank investigators,” O’Leary said. Matheson is being held in the Sonoma County jail under a no-bail warrant for a parole violation.
