LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) –
New details have emerged in the case of the man who was indicted Wednesday on 79 counts relating to crimes of financial forgery.
John Michael Dunn, 50, was arrested July 19 at his apartment on Pavilion Center after a search warrant carried out by the Metropolitan Police SWAT Team revealed Dunn was in possession of materials used to forge financial materials.
According to the arrest report, during the search of Dunn’s apartment police recovered dozens of forged credit cards, scanning devices/re-encoders for the creation of phony credit cards, and several identification cards and documents of persons other than the defendant.
The apartment that Dunn, who also goes by Nino Brown, lived in was registered using a fraudulent identification, and he was subsequently booked on those charges, according to the report.
This is not the first time Dunn has been connected to financial fraud. He accepted plea deals on two counts of using identification information of another and one count of establishing/ possessing a financial forgery laboratory in 2010.
Dunn is being held in the Clark County Detention Center on $680,000 bond and is due back in court Sept. 9.
