The Florida teenager who was arrested earlier this year for pretending to be a doctor and stealing from an elderly patient has been arrested again.
Malachi Love-Robinson, 19 was arrested by police in February for opening a fake medical office, practicing medicine without a license and pretending to be a doctor. This time, the arrest happened at a Car dealership in Virginia.
Employees at the Kargar Motors Car dealership in Stafford became suspicious when Malachi and an elderly woman attempted to buy a Jaguar for $35,000 so they Googled his name after he had completed a credit application form and listed the woman as a co-signer on the application. When they read all about him from Google and his past, the employees called the police.
“The employees became concerned because they felt Love-Richardson may be trying to fraudulently obtain the Jaguar and stealing money from the elderly woman he claimed to be his mother,” Stafford Sheriff’s office spokesman Major Don Lenhart said.
The dealership told Robinson they would call him after his application was approved, but called investigators instead. After investigators got the information they needed, they called Robinson back to the dealership and told him his application had been approved to buy the car.
Stafford investigators waited for him at the dealership. According to Major Lenhart, Robinson told police he came from Florida to Virginia to buy a car for himself and another for his godmother, who was with him. He also added that she had agreed to co-sign his loan application for the Jaguar but when the woman was spoken to, she claimed she had no idea he used her name to co-sign the loan application.
She was sown the credit application with her name and her social security number and she stated she had not given him permission to use her as a co-signer for this loan or any other.
Malachi Love-Robinson was charged with identity Fraud, false statements to obtain credit and obtaining money by false pretense. He is being held at Rappahannock Regional Jail, Stafford with no bond.
