STAFFORD, Va. — A Florida teenager accused of pretending to be a doctor and stealing money from an 86-year-old patient faces new charges in Virginia after authorities say he fraudulently tried to buy a luxury car.

Stafford County Sheriff’s officials say Malachi Love-Robinson is charged with identity theft and other fraud offenses after he attempted to purchase a Jaguar at a car dealership.

They say the elderly woman with Love-Robinson didn’t know she’d been listed as a co-signer on the loan application for the car. The woman wasn’t identified by police.

Sheriff’s officials say Love-Robinson told deputies he came to Virginia to buy a car for himself and another for his godmother.

Love-Robinson was arrested in February after law enforcement officials in Florida said he was practicing medicine without a license.
