According to The Examiner, MPD confiscated the IDs after the people using them—mainly students from Georgetown and George Washington University—had entered the building.
DCist notes that the students were not charged for the use of the IDs, but their cases were remanded to their respective colleges for further review.
Although they are not perfect, MPD is worried about the fake IDs because of their better quality holograms and magnetic strips.
MPD did not respond to a request for comment on the incident.
