Eleva man allegedly found with 25 fake IDs, 9 social security cards, charged with identity theft

Eau Claire County (WQOW) – An Eleva man faces a slew of charges after police found meth and dozens of fake IDs in his vehicle.

Song Lee was charged Monday in Eau Claire County Court with 2nd degree recklessly endangering safety, identity theft and possession of meth, among other charges.

According to the criminal complaint, when a deputy tried to make contact with Lee on Friday, he allegedly drove his SUV right at the deputy – nearly hitting him.

It took two deputies to eventually take him into custody, according to the complaint.

Inside the SUV, deputies said they found meth, a credit card reader, 25 fake IDs, nine social security cards, nine credit cards and 19 prepaid Visa gift cards totaling $2,900. They also found a birth certificate, bank statements and electric bills belonging to other people.

One of the victims said he recently learned someone tried to take out a credit card in his name and was missing bank statements with his routing information on it.

Lee is free on a $1,000 signature bond. He returns to court in October.
