Man already accused of identity theft arrested again
William Stuart accused of striking only weeks after release from jail
William Stuart, already facing charges related to identity theft, is accused of striking again—only weeks after his release from jail.
The 32-year-old North Side resident was arrested Monday on a charge of fraudulent use of identifying information.
An arrest warrant affidavit stated that the charge stems from a case last month.
It stated that in early March, he obtained a $7,000 bank loan and applied online for a $10,000 credit card in someone else’s name.
According to the affidavit, a worker at the bank recognized Stuart from a previous news story.
As KSAT 12 News reported on Feb. 7, Stuart was arrested at that time in a case involving a local airman and war veteran.
The alleged victim told police that Stuart had racked up thousands of dollars in debt in his name last fall without his permission.
At the time of the February arrest, Stuart already was on probation in yet another identity theft case.
Records also show he has a history of arrests for crimes like this, committed as far away as Dallas and as far back as five years ago.
After his arrest Monday, Stuart posted a $20,000 bond and was released from jail, records show.
