Multiple police cars and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office K-9 unit responded to the scene in the city parking lot in the 600 block of New Hampshire about 2 p.m.

Lawrence police spokesman Sgt. Bill Cory said the car was stopped after officers observed the driver going the wrong way on Vermont street.

Police officers searched the car, inside and out, and also led the drug-sniffing dog on a complete search of the vehicle.

At the conclusion of the search, two passengers were arrested on charges of making a false writing and obstruction of the legal process.

A 26-year-old from Liberal and an 18-year-old from St. Joseph, Mo., were booked into the Douglas County Jail to be held for immigration and customs officials.

The driver received a citation for driving the wrong way on a one-way street.

the driver was most likely (this is an assumption) because he was under the belief that they were legal (2 other passengers), they had documentation, he could very easily say that he thought the id's were legit, and no one would have any evidence to contradict.

"Because there friend, the driver, went the wrong way, they get deported?" Not really, they'll get deported because they snuck into this country illegally. They got caught because their friend drives like a dope.

The driver was one lost coyote! He overshot the border by a thousand miles.

so glad ours is not a sanctuary city!

LA/SF, you'd not see the law officials contacting ICE, leaders of those very liberal cities are nuts and people die because of it.

"Imigracion!"

maybe they were driving the wrong way because they couldn't read the signs in English.

The funny thing to me is that if they hadn't taken a wrong turn, they'd probably still be driving around!

Doing some googling... found references to "making false writing" as trying to use counterfeit money... also stuff having to do with notaries... so I think whoever guessed giving false names might be right. Might also be using a fake id? I dunno.

g_rock (anonymous) says… What is "making a false writing"? I think it is when a person goes on LJW and posts a message that is not theirs and gives no credit to the real author

I think false writing is like officially lying on any document......like maybe a green card or something. I know of one in which a corporate board was fictious..official lying.

I guess anything can be stated about "driving while brown", but that's not more offensive as slobama. Go LJWorld.

Poor poor illegals, committing crimes. We should give them free money, free food, a free house, and ask for their apology for being so rude by asking them to abide by our laws. Go slobama.

It appears as they didn't even find anything on them. I'm guessing the "false writing" might have been making up a name when the Officers asked for their information.
