(KPRC) – Police and U.S. Postal Inspectors are accusing five Houston, Texas men of using other people’s identities to purchase hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of cars and breast implants…for themselves.
Police said the case began with a tip about a single car purchase that seemed “irregular.”
Police said in little more than a month’s time, the group used seven identities at eight dealerships to buy 12 luxury cars for a total of $485,136.
Joel Cruz, Darion Wells, Devante Ruffin and Jamonte Booker have all been arrested and charged with fraud and identity theft. Police said in addition to the cars, Booker and Ruffin used other people’s IDs to get lines of credit so they could get breast implants for themselves.
A fifth person, Obinna Uzozie, was also arrested. Police said Uzozie was a salesman at one of the dealerships.
