Virginia Man Indicted on Identify Theft Charges

February 22, 2013

Office Affiliation: The Office of Investigations

A former Lower Southampton man now living in Virginia is accused of stealing and using a Social Security number belonging to another person.

In March 2011, Ronnie Lee Durham, now of Alexandria, Va., used the name Ronnie Lee Johnson to get a job for a company in Langhorne, where he had access to client files, according to an indictment handed down Thursday. Between March and April 2011, Durham allegedly accessed the identifying information of “RJP,” who resided in Mississippi, and used it to rent an apartment in the Feasterville section of Lower Southampton. He then opened bank and credit card accounts and secured a job in New Jersey using RJP’s information, according to the indictment.

He was arrested in Virginia and charged with four counts of Social Security fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft.

If convicted, the 50-year-old defendant faces a maximum sentence of 22 years in prison, a three-year period of supervised release, a $1.25 million fine and a $500 special assessment.

The case was investigated by the Social Security Administration, Office of Inspector General, the Diplomatic Security Service, and the Lower Southampton Police Department. It is being prosecuted by Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda R. Reinitz.
