Cops: 76 driver’s licenses found on Georgia man accused of child molestation, trafficking

A former Department of Drivers Services employee accused of several child molestation and trafficking charges was found with 76 driver’s licenses when he was arrested Tuesday, authorities said.

Esteban Olivas, 25, of Gainesville, was arrested at his home in the 300 block of Skyview Lane on outstanding warrants from Oakwood police, the Hall County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release. 

Olivas was wanted on charges of aggravated child molestation, trafficking a person under the age of 18 and enticing a child for indecent purposes, the release said. He had been employed by the DDS in Gainesville but had not worked there since mid-2017.

Deputies said they found 75 driver’s licenses from across Georgia and one from Massachusetts at Olivas’ home. He faces an additional 76 counts of identification theft and may face more charges, the release said. 

As of 5 p.m. Thursday, Olivas remained in the Hall County Jail without bond, according to records. 

An investigation is ongoing.
