Arkansas man charged with forging LU documents

February 21st, 2019 in Local News

An Arkansas man has been charged with forging documents at Lincoln University.

Robert Brown, 21, is charged with one count of felony forgery.

Brown “knowingly altered personal information and identifications to apply to Lincoln as a student on two separate occasions,” according to a Lincoln University Police Department probable cause statement.

Authorities allege Brown had an outstanding balance of more than $10,500 from attending the school from fall 2016 to spring 2017. Brown attempted to apply in spring 2018 but did not provide a Social Security number or date of birth.

With the help of an ex-housing director at Lincoln, Brown allegedly created the name “Elijah Harrington” and applied again, using the fake name, address, and photo IDs with different facial hair and glasses. He was residing in Perry Hall at the time of his arrest, using the forged pedigree to take up residency.
