According to Phoenix Police, he met a woman online, told her he was Richard Peterson and then pawned some of her jewelry. She says she met Alldred on a dating website in 2014.
JOANNJoann from Brooklyn Park’s story plays out in a strikingly similar manner to Linda’s. This time, however, he told her he was a lawyer named “Derek Allarad”, a slightly different spelling. The Minnesota Bar has no record of any such person.
When Linda began checking her accounts, she discovered the man she’d been dating had apparently been using her personal information to open new credit cards and even charged the Hawaii trips to her.
Linda called police and when the man she now knew as Derek Alldred returned home on Aug. He was booked in the Washington County Jail on suspicion of felony check forgery. “I basically gave him access to steal my identity.” The only answer she has is, “He’s a professional.”Linda and Missi soon realized they were not alone.
The case is now in the hands of the Washington County Attorney. Alldred is the same man convicted of Theft by Swindle in 2014 for stiffing the St. At the time he was posing as a surgeon and dating a local woman who was a doctor.
Derek Alldred travels from California to Arizona to the Twin Cities and back again.
In his wake, women say they are left with empty promises and wallets.
The mother claims Alldred had told them he was paying the bills. Back here in Minnesota, a nurse from Cottage Grove claims Alldred told her his name was “Steele Alldrich.” She too says she was tricked into paying for a trip to Hawaii.
And this October in Arizona, Alldred pleaded guilty to theft.
A Sacramento woman even married Alldred, thinking he was an international businessman.
Her mother says when all was said and done she lost her house to foreclosure.
In all, Linda estimates Derek Alldred duped her out of nearly 0,000.
