Deputies Arrest Man They Say Posed As A Disney

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a 51-year-old man has been arrested after claiming to be a member of the Walt Disney family and giving away invalid Disneyland passes.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials said in a statement Wednesday that the man called himself “Stephen Disney” and had a fake driver’s license and tax forms that falsely claimed income from the Walt Disney Corp.

The statement says he gave Disneyland passes to a woman for a raffle. When the winner took the passes to Disneyland, she learned they hadn’t been activated.

Deputies determined the man’s name is Stephen David Urquidez and the passes were stolen from a store.

Urqidez was arrested on suspicion of burglary and having a driver’s license with a forged state seal, a felony.

He was released after posting $20,000 bond.
