WGN Investigates has confirmed nine people have been arrested in a probe involving the Secretary of State’s office.

The probe discovered foreign passports have been used to fraudulently get state ID's or driver's licenses.

WGN is told state employees are now being ordered to copy all the paperwork for driver`s license applications that use foreign passports for identification.

Instead of giving the person a license on the spot, that application must first be shipped to Springfield for review.

If any employee suspects fraud, they're supposed to contact the secretary`s own fraud unit.

WGN Investigates will have more on the story as it unfolds.
