A Philadelphia man who authorities say stole the identities of eight Lehigh Valley residents to rack up $88,000 of bills in their names, partly to buy penis enlargements for him and a friend and breast implants for two women, could serve nearly two decades behind bars.
“People think that because I’m gay, I don”t have to have my parts working,” he told the judge. (…)
Juarbe has 26 prior convictions, 17 of which are thefts. She said he’s also used 23 aliases.
Juarbe, according to authorities, used information stolen from Dino Melendez Realty Co. in Allentown to steal identities in the Lehigh Valley and make more than $88,000 in purchases and loans between September 2007 and January 2008. That, according to police, included four plastic surgeries: a penis enlargement for him and another man, 30-year-old Manuel Delarosa of Philadelphia; and breast enhancement surgeries for two women, 26-year-old Maria Lopez and 33-year-old Bedenissi Feliciano, both of Philadelphia.
