Happiest Place On Earth?
A middle-aged man who held himself out to be “Stephen Disney”, but who instead was only Stephen Urquidez, was arrested on Wednesday for stealing Disneyland passes in a felony burglary and possession of fake identification case. Mr. Urquidez allegedly had a fake driver’s license with the name “Stephen Disney” as well as false tax forms showing income from the Walt Disney Corporation.
This who scam was unraveled when Urquidez gave Disneyland passes to a friend to donate for a charity raffle. The raffle winner then took the passes to Disneyland where they would not work and Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputies were contacted and started their investigation. The investigation ultimately found that Urquidez had allegedly stolen the passes from a store and that he had no affiliation with the Disney family or corporation in any capacity.
Urquidez was subsequently arrested on felony burglary and felony possession of a forged driver’s license charges.
