Former D Mo's chef charged with stealing half brother's identity

March 21, 2014 8:39 a.m. | He was known as Ramon Antonio Mitre-Hernandez to law enforcement and “Chef Tony” to patrons at the former D Mo’s Italian Pasta & Chop House in The Clarke Hotel. Police now say that neither name was his.

Milwaukee resident Daniel Morales has been accused of using his half brother’s identity to commit crimes, collect unemployment checks and rack up debts.

Morales, 35, was charged Thursday, March 13, in Waukesha County Circuit Court with five counts of identity theft, for which he faces 30 years in prison and $50,000 in fines if convicted.

According to the criminal complaint, Ramon Mitre-Hernandez reported the alleged identity theft to City of Waukesha Police last September.

He told an officer in the complaint that he had been receiving notices from the IRS and the Department of Workforce Development about unpaid back taxes. The notices said his unemployment checks would be intercepted to pay the debts.
