Howard Farley Biography
Howard Farley was finally arrested Wednesday as he tried to board his private plane in the hangar of his home in Florida, US attorney María Chapa López said in a statement.
The 72-year-old refugee was charged in 1985 with operating the South Line, a railroad used to transport drugs across the United States.
Farley is believed to have lived on the run for 35 years, using the name of a Florida boy who died in 1955.
According to a criminal complaint, Farley stole the identity of a person identified only as “T.B” who was born in Lake Worth, Florida in 1954 and died three months later.
However, his alleged ploy came to light after the government submitted a passport renewal application in February that showed T.B.’s name, date of birth and social security number. He received.
Investigators discovered this person’s death certificates and determined that T.B. they weren’t registered until 1983, which is unusual for someone born in 1954.
The complaint alleges that Farley used T.B’s information three times to obtain a passport: in March 1987, October 1998, and October 2008.
He even used the fraudulent passport to travel to Vietnam in 2018, the court document says.
Investigators also claim that Farley has a Florida driver’s license and a driver’s license with the identity of T.B.
The officials who tried to charge Farley with passport fraud went to Weirsdale, Florida. The home, which he has shared with a 56-year-old Vietnamese woman since at least 2007, authorities said Wednesday.
The fingerprint comparison confirmed that Farley was the same person wanted in Nebraska since 1985.
If convicted of passport fraud, you face a maximum of 10 years in prison.
