Reports emerged on Thursday of a NY fugitive, allegedly identified as Quashon Burton, being apprehended in late October after almost a year on the run. The 31-year-old is said to have fled his Brooklyn apartment last November, avoiding charges of fraudulently obtaining coronavirus relief aid in the form of $150,000 in forgivable federal loans.

In part due to a distinctive tattoo on the fugitive’s neck, Burton was spotted at Disney’s Animal Kingdom by a federal postal inspector, Jeff Andre. The man was visiting the Walt Disney World theme park under a fake name and refused to be identified, even after fingerprints confirmed it was Burton. He was later denied bail and has been remanded in custody pending further court proceedings.
