A city woman has been indicted for allegedly producing and selling false motor vehicle insurance identification cards, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

Yvette Wimberly, 44-year-old, is alleged to have produced and sold the cards between March 2014 and October 2015, authorities said.

Wimberly’s documents appeared legitimate, but contained inaccurate signatures and false information, authorities said.

Motorists are required to carry the cards as proof their vehicles are insured, authorities said.

Authorities said the indictment comes after a six-month investigation by the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office Insurance Fraud Unit.

Wimberly’s offense is a third-degree crime that carries three to five years in state prison if convicted, authorities said.
