MASON CITY, Iowa – Fake IDs and driver’s licenses are sending a North Iowa couple to prison.

Aleksandr Antolyevich Sagaydak, 37, and Galina Mikhaylovna Sagaydak, who turns 39 on Tuesday, were arrested after a May search where authorities say they found at least 50 phony Wisconsin driver’s licenses. The Mason City couple were also accused of traveling to department stores in Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin and using the fake IDs to fraudulently buy things.

The Sagaydaks pleaded guilty to two counts of forgery and were each sentenced Monday to five years behind bars. That sentence, however, will be served after the Sagaydaks finish serving their sentences for violating their probation for 2016 convictions in Winneshiek County for 2nd degree theft.
