Man Accused of Identity Theft Released from Jail, Says He's a Victim
A Lake City man accused in an elaborate crime ring says he isn't an identity thief. He says he's an identity theft victim.
Brian Lowery, of Lake City, was arrested last month on charges that he cashed a counterfeit payroll check. He was one of dozens of arrests made in connection with an identity theft ring.
Lowery says his wallet was stolen just weeks before the alleged crime. His public defender backs that story -- and law enforcement officials confirmed he requested a duplicate driver's license around that time.
He is set to meet with the state attorney's office Thursday. In court, his attorney said Lowery is cooperating with a secret service agent.
An Alachua County judge release Lowery from jail Monday.
He spent 31 days in jail.
