Correctional Officer Accused of Stealing Hundreds of Identities
Police do a routine stop because a man's car windows are too tinted, and inside his car they find a list of over 300 stolen social security numbers.
Police say they are unsure how Daniel Maldonado, a correctional officer in Miami Dade County, obtained the numbers.
Police say he was using the identities to file fradulent tax returns.
"A search of his car found several refund cards, as well as a ledger containing 323 names, social security numbers, names and dates of birth for all these people who are victims of identity theft."
Authorities do not know just how many people on the list have been victimized, but they did find cash as well as IRS returns Maldonado had obtained through the use of these identities.
The list of charges against Maldonado is long - he has hundreds of felony charges and six misdemeanors filed against him.
