There are five ID cards and most of them are pretty easy to find and they’re all in and around the Warehouse. The first two are in two of the houses at the base of the Warehouse. Just search around all of the interiors of the circled buildings. They’re pretty small so you shouldn’t have a problem finding them. You’ll probably even find these before you even get the actual side quest.
