On May 3 and 4, Alvin F. Cruz, Edwin A. Alarcon-Diaz, and Jorge L. Leiva-Lopez each pled guilty to making false statements for possessing or representing altered or fraudulent social security numbers. The three are among 27 employees of either Triad International Maintenance Corporation (TIMCO), Greensboro, NC or contract labor companies which supply workers to TIMCO who were detained on March 8, 2005. Although none of the three held FAA certifications, subsequent investigation found that they were in the United States illegally and had falsified immigration and identification documents. Sentencing for the three individuals is scheduled for August. The ongoing investigation is being conducted jointly with DHS-ICE and the Social Security Administration OIG.
