BROOKLYN, N.Y. — After about a year on the run, a fugitive from Brooklyn, New York, was arrested last month after he was spotted at Disney World.
According to NBC News, Jeff Andre, a federal officer with the United States Postal Inspection Service, was vacationing Oct. 20 at Disney World when he spotted Quashon Burton, 32.
According to WABC, Burton reportedly has a distinctive “H” tattoo on his neck that Andre recognized. Andre reported Burton to Disney World security. They contacted the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. Burton was found with two family members at a bus stop in Disney World. WABC said that Burton allegedly gave officers a fake name and resisted arrest.
On Nov. 29, 2021, Burton was charged for allegedly stealing the identities of at least four people in order to obtain about $150,000 in COVID-19 relief loan applications fraudulently, according to NBC News.
According to NBC News, Burton has been on the run since USPIS attempted to arrest him last December at his house in Brooklyn, New York.
Burton is back in federal custody, according to WABC.
No further information has been released.
