A wanted fugitive from New York City was busted after a federal officer spotted him at Walt Disney World in Florida.
Federal postal inspector Jeff Andre was on vacation with his family when he saw 31-year-old Quashon Burton at the park. Burton is wanted on charges of stealing $150,000 in COVID-19 relief loans, Walt Disney World News Today reported.
Burton is accused of stealing the identities of at least four people to fraudulently apply for federal loans under the Paycheck Protection Program meant to help business owners struggling during the coronavirus pandemic.
He managed to evade police by using fake identities but couldn’t hide a distinct cursive “H” tattoo on his neck.
Andre had been working on Burton’s case and recognized him because of his unique tattoo. Andre contacted local authorities, and Burton was confronted near a bus stop outside of Animal Kingdom. He refused to show his identification and was tackled to the ground by an officer after he resisted arrest.
He was taken into custody and charged by local officials with resisting arrest without violence before he was handed over to the federal agents to be extradited to New York to face charges.
