Dr. Love Arrested At Virginia Car Dealership
After JUST being arrested two weeks ago for grand theft and fraud, Malachi “Dr. Love” Robinson is back in police custody. Authorities report that the teen who made headlines for scamming as a fake doctor, was arrested in Virginia while trying to buy two cars with help from an unsuspecting co-signer.
Employees at Kargar Motors Car Dealership in Stafford grew suspicious when 19-year-old Malachi Love-Robinson and an elderly woman attempted to buy a Jaguar for $35,000.
Workers Googled Love-Robinson’s name after he completed an online credit application and listed the woman as a co-signer on the credit application.
After they learned more about Love-Robinson’s past — those workers called investigators.
When investigators collected the information they needed, they call Love-Robinson back to the dealership and told him his credit had been approved to purchase the car.
When Love-Robinson returned to the dealership, two Stafford investigators were there waiting for him.
Malchi then told authorities that he was with his God-mother and intended to buy two cars; one for himself and one for her. The problem? She never agreed to co-sign on the Jaguar he was attempting to buy.
“[He] told the deputies he had come to Virginia from the State of Florida to purchase a car for himself and another for his God-Mother who was with him. He stated she had agreed to co-sign the loan for the Jaguar he was going to purchase. He also admitted that he was out of jail on bond from the State of Florida for Practicing Medicine Without a License,” Lenhart said. “Deputies then spoke with the elderly lady that was with Mr. Love-Robinson. She advised that he was a distant relative of hers through her son’s wife etc., and he considered her to be his God-Mother.”
While she told investigators she did not feel as if she was in any danger, she was later surprised to learn the teenager used her name as a co-signer on the Jaguar.
When the dealership ran her credit, they found two other loan applications submitted in the last couple days with her information that she had not done, Lenhart said.
“A check with her credit card company revealed there had been a $1,200 charge the day before for two iPads and a cell phone that she had not purchased,” he added. “Love-Robinson had been bragging to the employees of the dealership earlier that day about two iPad’s he had recently purchased. They were seized along with other items at the time of his arrest.”
Love-Robinson was charged with Identity Fraud, False Statements to Obtain Credit, and Obtaining Money by False Pretenses. He is being held at Rappahannock Regional Jail with no bond.
