Man wanted for stealing father's identity to obtain loans
BATON ROUGE - Police are looking for a Plaquemine man wanted for stealing his father's identity to obtain loans.
29-year-old Gabadiah Jemar McClay is wanted on charges of forgery and identity theft.
Detectives said McClay gained access to his father's personal identifying information in February. McClay then used the information, without his father's knowledge or consent, to acquire an auto loan along with a personal loan in the total amount of around $69,000.
McClay attempted to acquire two additional personal loans totaling around $22,000, but was denied after the application appeared suspicious.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the man is urged to contact the BRPD Financial Crimes Unit at (225) 389-3871.
