The National Bureau of Investigation - International Airport Division on Tuesday arrested a foreigner who used various identities to con people into giving him USD 150,000 in exchange for what he claimed was a larger sum of money in his luggage held by a cargo forwarding company.

Officials of the NBI on Thursday presented to the public the suspect who identified himself as Justine Barlee, Jerry Rockstone, and Jerry Brown, and claimed to be an American, Liberian, and Jamaican national.

The suspect also claimed to be an American serviceman and presented to investigators a United States Marine Corps service number and a US passport, with serial number 4877311994.

Upon verification with the US Embassy in Manila, the NBI said the passport had been declared lost in 2013 and was not issued to a “Jerry Brown.”

The Embassy also clarified that the man was not a member of the US Armed Forces.

During the entrapment operation in Pasay City, the man also yielded documents and receipts for a luggage  at the Global Cargo brokerage company that he claimed contained money.

Investigators concluded that the man’s modus was to convince unwitting lenders to give him money to supposedly claim his luggage from the brokerage firm.

The man was later charged before the Pasay City prosecutor for usurpation of authority or official functions and for using fictitious names and concealing his true identity.
