A Madison County man was arrested Friday after his employer reported him for trying to use a fake Covid-19 vaccine card, troopers said.

Devin R. Kemp, 24, of Eaton, was charged with second-degree possession of a forged instrument, according to a news release issued by the New York State Police. The charge is a class D felony.

Troopers were contacted by the state Department of Health Vaccination Complaint Investigation Team on Monday after a private company in Marcy reported Kemp for the fake vaccine card, troopers said. State police refused to identify the company.

Kemp was taken to the Oneida County Public Safety Building for centralized arraignment, troopers said.

If convicted Kemp could face a minimum sentence of probation with no jail time and a maximum of up to seven years in prison, according to the NYS Unified Court System.
