(The AEGIS Alliance) – A man faces charges of identity theft after law enforcement realized that he obviously did not look like his potential victim. He has been referred to as the “plastic man” for both his appearance, and the stolen debit card.
Julian R. Mitchell, age 20, of Nashville, Tennessee, was arrested by police after trying to use a stolen debit card at a bar on Thursday, January 31st. According to the arrest affidavit, it was clearly obvious that Mr. Mitchell did not look like the person he attempted to impersonate.
The arrest affidavit was obtained by Fox 17, and reveals that the bar’s system was notified that the debit card Mitchell tried to use to pay his tab was stolen or lost. He was then asked to provide an ID as a result, and it became apparent that the weight, height, and photo did not match the appearance of Mitchell.
Metro Police said to Fox 17 that Mitchell had denied using the victim’s driver’s license. However, the suspect was then searched, and the victim’s wallet was discovered inside Mitchell’s fanny pack, with some cards that belonged to the victim.
Mr. Mitchell was then booked into the Davidson County Jail and is being held on a $25,000 bond. It was scheduled that he appear in court on February 4.
