According to prosecutors, the owner of the Old Corner Saloon, Todd Anderson, was charged after he sold the fake vaccine passports to undercover officers multiple times for $20 each.

At the time of his arrest, officers found Anderson “in possession of a number of other unfilled out COVID-19 vaccination cards, a laminating machine, laminate and several other cards that were finished,” Luke Blehm of California’s Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, told the New York Post.

Anderson — who has been charged with identity theft, forging government documents and falsifying medical records — could have his bar’s license suspended or revoked.
