An Ole Miss student was arrested and charged with manufacturing false identifications by the Oxford Police Department on Monday.

Liam Little, a sophomore political science major from Ontario, Canada, was taken into custody at the Jefferson Apartments when the property manager noticed “suspicious activity” occurring at the apartments, according to a press release from OPD. Officers discovered a large fake identification manufacturing system at the apartment.

Little was transported to the Lafayette County Detention Center, where he was given a bond of $75,000 by a Justice Court judge.

Officials at the Lafayette County Detention Center did not disclose whether Little was still in custody or had posted bond.

Little’s arrest comes after the passage of the alcohol safety and security ordinance, with which city officials and the Oxford Police Department have tried to decrease the use of fake IDs to gain entry into bars.

The law, which was passed in September and took effect Jan. 1, requires customers entering a bar to scan their IDs.
