According to online reports, Brian Dalyrimple, member of R&B group Soul For Real, is on the run from police with his infant son in tow.
Duluth police said they are looking for a R&B singer in connection with an identity fraud case.
Police told Channel 2’s Manuel Bojorquez that Brian Dalyrimple of the group Soul For Real is involved in a case of identity theft that involves more than 200 victims. Police said Dalyrimple is on the run.
Duluth police have already arrested a woman, Laborah Crawford, in connection with the identity theft case. She is being held in the Gwinnett County Jail.
Police said they are still looking for Dalyrimple, who is allegedly on the run with his 10-month-old son.
Back in the '90s, Dalyrimple was a fresh face on the music scene as part of the R&B group, Soul For Real. The group had a hit song, “Candy Rain.” Police said they are looking for him.
“One of our detectives is working on it, she’s our white-collar crime specialist and she has identified 145 victims within our jurisdiction, several of them businesses, and an additional 115 victims in other jurisdictions, so you’re looking at over 260 victims right now,” said Maj. Don Woodruff with the Duluth Police Department.
The victims, according to police, are now out of more than $1 million collectively as the result of identity theft and financial fraud.
Crawford is in jail on charges related to the crimes. Dalyrimple was also involved, according to police.
“He was the biological father and the child was turned over to the grandmother in custody and then he went to the day care, picked him up and left with him,” said Woodruff.
Police would not say anything more about how they believe the two were able to get the money and personal information of others. Police said the investigation began with a call from across the country.
“There was a victim in California also who contacted us. (They) noticed that a lot of charges had been made here in Duluth on their accounts and what not and we looked further into it,” said Woodruff.
Police said they do not have reason to believe that Dalyrimple’s son is in danger.
Dalyrimple’s mother told Channel 2’s Manuel Bojorquez she wants both her son and grandson to come home safely. [LINK]
