OLATHE — More than 30 people have been arrested in a phony driver’s licenses scheme in suburban Kansas City.

Former Kansas Department of Revenue employee Samantha Jo Moore is jailed in Johnson County on 51 felonies, including bribery, identity theft and official misconduct. Bond for the 28-year-old has been set at $250,000. Her public defender, Joseph Astrab, didn’t immediately return a phone call from The Associated Press seeking comment.

Moore is accused of taking bribes to supply licenses to dozens of people while working as a driver’s license examiner at the license office in Mission. The Kansas City Star ( reports that authorities also allege that Moore took actions to destroy or tamper with evidence.

Officials say the investigation is ongoing.
