Nothing wrong here.
On April 17,
2004, after he had been arrested and released on bail, Elgindy
went to MacArthur Airport on Long Island and tried to board a
plane with false identification. He was traveling under the name
“Herbert Manny Velasco” and had with him several pieces of
identification bearing variants of that fictitious name, as well
as approximately $25,000 in cash, more than $30,000 worth of
jewelry, blank checks for a bank account belonging to his mother,
and blank checks for an account created in his own name and
listing his country of residence as Lebanon. Elgindy falsely
told the arresting authorities that his name was Manny Velasco,
that he was a jewelry dealer, and that Amr Elgindy, whose name
appeared on several documents and prescriptions in his
possession, was his lawyer. He finally admitted his true
identity when the officers found his California driver’s license.
