HACKENSACK, N.J. – An unemployed Hackensack woman wanted on fraud and identify-theft charges in other states used two New Jersey driver’s licenses – one in the name of another woman, authorities said.

Schemika S. Williams, 27, had “additional documents and forms of fictitious and/ or stolen identification,” when she was arrested Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal said Monday.

She also was “leasing her present apartment under the identity of yet another fraudulent identity,” the prosecutor said.

Anti-fraud technology helped the NJ Motor Vehicle Commission uncover the fraud, Grewal said.

Williams remained held on $75,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail pending an Aug. 28 first appearance in Central Municipal Court in Hackensack.

Detectives charged her with tampering with public records and “obtaining a New Jersey driver’s license by knowingly displaying or uttering documents or other writings which falsely purported to be a driver’s license,” the prosecutor said.

Grewal thanked the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission Security and Investigations Unit for its assistance in the investigation.
