TV station report says the U.S. Navy Vets con man was hiding in New Mexico
From a report by KRQE in Albuquerque:
U.S. Marshals said he has lived in Albuquerque and knows the area. Recently new information pointed to him hiding out here.
“He is known for his ability to blend in or change his appearance or something. So he may not really be low profile he may just be using an alias.”
[Deputy Ben]Segotta said they want him in handcuffs badly, “He solicited hundred of millions of dollars from people in order to help veterans and betrayed that trust between people and our military.”
Thompson is a fake name and officials don’t really know who this guy is. For a while he had actually assumed the identity of a New Mexico man who ran a local veterans group.
He’s 5 feet 8 inches about 160 pounds and said to be a heavy and often violent drinker.
From the Associated Press:
Authorities say he has used several aliases, including Ronnie Brittain and Elmer Dosier. He also has shown an ability to alter his appearance by changing his hair and wearing glasses.
It’s not hard to imagine how the capture of U.S. Navy Veterans Association founder “Bobby Thompson” could be a nightmare for the GOP in an election year. Especially with all the pictures of the con man and other high-profile Republicans that are floating out there.
