ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A man is facing fraud charges after deputies say he forged a job application to hide his criminal background. Saturday, he made his first appearance in court.
Deputies say 27-year-old Russell Mays applied to Los Poblanos Inn, and on his application forged a court document from Judge Brett Loveless’ office claiming a past case was dropped.
Mays also allegedly used his mother’s Social Security number. Saturday in metro court, Mays was released on his own recognizance due to his minimal failure to appear history.
He has past charges for identity theft.
