Bouncer Recognizes Own Stolen ID
IOWA CITY, Iowa, (UPI) — Police in Iowa said a nightclub bouncer confiscated his own stolen ID from a university student who attempted to use it to enter the club.
Investigators said the bouncer, whose ID was reported stolen in February, called Iowa City police at 12:55 a.m. Saturday and reported University of Iowa student Steven Fiorella, 19, had handed him the stolen ID and attempted to pass it off as his own, the Iowa City Press-Citizen reported Wednesday.
Police said Fiorella, who was also in possession of the bouncer’s debit card and AAA card, told officers he purchased the items at a party for $20.
Fiorella was arrested on charges of fifth-degree theft and unlawful use of another’s ID.
