On Thursday, April 5, at 7:44 p.m. officers of the Santa Monica Police Department made an arrest in a case that began on March 12, 2012 in Chula Vista, California.
On that date a mother, living in Chula Vista, tried to obtain medical benefits for her two-year-old son through Social Security. The mother was denied these benefits. Bemused, the mother did some research and discovered that someone who was working at a company located in Santa Monica was using her two-year-old son’s identity.
The police at Chula Vista passed this information on to the Santa Monica Police Department for further investigation.
After the SMPD had identified a possible suspect they went to 1534 15th Street on April 5, and waited until the man who was using the two year old’s identity exited the building.
This man was met by the investigators who promptly arrested him. He was taken off to jail were he was charged with unauthorized use of personal identifying information and performing certain acts in false character.
Bail was not granted as this man was held on an immigration hold. He was 29-years-old and a “resident” of Los Angeles.
