Detectives from the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station are asking for help in locating victims who may have been misled by an accused burglar who allegedly claimed to be a member of the Disney family, according to a news release.

The suspect, identified as 51-year-old Canyon Country resident Stephen David Urquidez, allegedly stole Disneyland theme park passes from a retail business, according to a news release from the Sheriff’s Station.

Using the name “Stephen Disney” and claiming to be a member of the founding family of the Walt Disney Company, Urquidez allegedly donated the passes for use in a raffle to benefit a nonprofit organization in January, according to the news release.

The winner of the raffle attempted to use the Disneyland passes, but was informed they had not been properly activated.

The woman whom Urquidez gave the passes to, identified as a 40-year-old college student, then contacted the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station to report the incident.

Urquidez was arrested Tuesday on felony burglary charges for allegedly stealing the passes.

At the time of his arrest Urquidez was allegedly in possession of a fake driver’s license under the name “Stephen Disney,” and had allegedly used fake W-2 tax forms showing income from the Walt Disney Company, according to a news release.

Hours after being booked on charges at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station, Urquidez posted a $20,000 bond and was released.

Detectives are investigating to see if there are any other victims involved in the case.
