Dalyrimple, who has been running from Duluth police since February, also faces related charges from forgery to aggravated bank fraud, after being apprehended in North Carolina with his infant son, who has been missing for well over a month.
Brothers Jason and Andre Dalyrimple, both former members of the R&B group, will be indicted for their role in the identity theft case, though police have yet to specify their exact charges. No word as to the involvement of the fourth member of the group, Christopher Dalyrimple.
The police became aware of the Dalyrimple brothers' criminal activity when a $12,000 fraudulent charge was traced by a California victim, to Duluth. The victim notified Duluth police that false checking and credit accounts had been set up at a Georgia bank, which they then traced back to two addresses in a local apartment complex, both rented by Brian Dalyrimple, using two false names.
When the police searched the apartments they turned up a variety of fake driver's licenses, said Major Woordruff, a Duluth police officer. They also found a "multitude of fraudulently obtained credit cards, documents for bank loans, checking and savings accounts in fraudulent names, account and routing numbers belonging to legitimate accounts and documents containing identifying information of many individuals."
According to police, Brian Dalyrimple was leasing at least four other apartments, all under different aliases. Laborah Crawford, the mother of Brian's infant child, was arrested immediately following the search, and is being held in Gwinnett County Jail, on similar charges.
It is estimated that the Dalyrimples struck over 260 victims and at least 8 banks, for as much as $1,000,000.
