California Operator Arrested for Identity Theft

Posted on October 20, 2001 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

Police arrested the owner of an Ontario, Calif., limousine service on Tuesday for allegedly using the identity of a Los Angeles man who died in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks when applying for and American Express card.

Julious Wright, owner of DLS Platinum Limousine Service, allegedly used the name Daniel Brandhorst to apply for an American Express card online. Brandhorst was a passenger that was aboard United Airlines Flight 175 that crashed into the World Trade Center.

"He was found with multiple stolen identities," said Brad Kloepfer, a member of a federal task force that was created to investigate financial crimes.

Kloepfer explained that it appeared that Wright allegedly chose his victims by reading obituaries.

Wright was held on $500,000 bond at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga. He was arraigned Thursday on charges of suspicion of identity theft and possession of stolen property
