In March, a security officer at a business detained a man named Derrick Brown who was trying to use a fake ID to cash an altered paycheck.  The officer contacted the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office and requested deputies respond to investigate this case of fraud.  Deputies collected the ID and determined the man’s name being used was a victim of ongoing identity theft.  Deputies arrested Brown and booked him into the Fresno County Jail for identity theft and an outstanding warrant for burglary.  Brown posted bail and was released later that day.
