SAN DIEGO (AP) — Federal court documents allege that a San Diego man's collection of passports created in the names of dead children was part of a bigger plan to buy at least $1.6 million in gold coins and hide the gains from tax collectors.
U-T San Diego reports Sunday that the new charges came in a grand jury indictment of 70-year-old Lloyd Taylor.
He now additional counts of aggravated identity theft, tax evasion and impeding the Internal Revenue Service.
Federal prosecutors contend that Taylor, a former account and lawyer, stole the identities of at least six children who died in the Bay Area in the 1950s, using the information to obtain passports.
Taylor has pleaded not guilty to charges of making false statements on passport applications and is being held without bond.
