Extensive identity theft operation exposed
Melissa Cutler reports:
A California man with North Texas ties is behind bars for drug possession. He was also in a downtown Dallas hotel room that appeared to be the center of an extensive identity theft operation.
On Monday Dallas police arrested 26-year-old Justin Bennett. His last known address is in Los Angeles but records show he used to live in Rockwall.
For now Bennett is charged with the possession of marijuana and meth. But inside his hotel room at the Hyatt Regency in Dallas police found 400 to 500 credit cards, debit cards, gift cards and social security numbers.
There was evidence of personal information involving a federal agency lifted from registration forms from a conference hosted by a North Texas hotel and real estate applications for homes in Sachse, Rowlett and Rockwall.

Anyone remember ever seeing any report of stolen or copied registration forms from a federal agency conference? I don’t.
