SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco prosecutors have charged three people with applying for disabled placards permits they did not need, and a spokeswoman for the California Department of Motor Vehicles says more arrests are expected.

District Attorney George Gascon said Monday that a 50-year-old woman and her 29-year-old son allegedly forged the signature of a doctor who had never treated them on their applications for the permits that allow motorists to use the blue parking spaces reserved for the disabled and to park at meters for free.

Gascon says a 35-year-old woman who allegedly submitted seven applications over four years also was arrested.

All three were charged with filing false documents, perjury and commercial burglary.

DMV spokeswoman Jessica Gonzalez says the arrests are the first from an ongoing investigation that has identified at least 29 suspected cases of placard fraud since February.
