Stephanie Senechal, 22, of Santa Ana, Tyrone Brinson, 35, of Ontario and Benedict Erazoquinones, 28, of Paramount were arrested at the 1300 block of Begonia Avenue in Costa Mesa on Sunday with stolen mail and instructions on how to commit identity theft, according to the O.C. Register.



Costa Mesa police officers were patrolling the area at around 4 p.m. on Sunday afternoon after receiving calls about suspects rifling through mailboxes, according to the Costa Mesa Police Department.

The police officers ended up approaching a vehicle that was being driven by Brinson. He consented to a search of the car and the police officers found manila envelopes and folders that contained stolen mail and personal information.

Then the police officers found out that Brinson was on bail for a previous identity-theft case. Apparently you cannot teach an old dog new tricks.

Senechal, a female passenger,  had a folder in her purse with instructions regarding how to commit identity theft (identity theft for dummies?).

Erazoquinones, a male passenger, gave the police officers a fake name but they figured out who he was and found that he had a felony probation warrant in Los Angeles.

Not surprisingly all three of these losers were booked for possession of meth and stolen mail. The police investigators are considering asking the OCDA to pursue an identity-theft case against the trio.

Meth is a hell of a drug!

  1. Michael Chafitz age 53. Drives a white Lexus w/blue rims/ also white truck. Mike is a big time meth/heroin dealer in Orange County with lots of drug connections in Newport beach. He sells meth to a kid at 118 E. Oceanfront in Newport beach. Chafitz harbors a young 20 year old girl keeping her addicted to drugs, abusive and controlling. Why don’t you put him away! He probably sold to these fools.

      1. Only whats public info. He goes by the name ‘Michael Richards’ now…..so Cleaver! Lives in Laguna Hills, apparently? He was living on a boat in Newport. Law enforcement affiliate called me looking for info dunno why Mike’s pretty dumb. Usually rents in wealthy beach areas. Past landlords and neighbors say he is violent. crazy, sells drugs to young people in the area. Allways gets evicted for nonpayment of rent. does the same thing with his vehicles. gets into high end vehicles, somehow?
        Petty sure his white Dodge truck was repossessed. finally. Same thing with the Lexus he drove. Mike had Travis Russell dump it off in Riverside when law enforcement picked him up and no one was there to hide it while he was incarcerated. Legal Car theft basically. Mikes on the run constantly. Some family cover for him. He sells heroin & meth( a misdemeanor in Ca.) So it’s arrest & release time and again. Mike makes bail every time and is usually back on the street in 24 hrs. I think Mike drugs his pit-bull and is involved with beastyality. That is just my opinion from my observations but i think i am spot on

        1. Mike Chafitz now 56 is still driving a white Dodge Ram truck. He forced our 18 year old daughter into prostitution. She’s 23 now. Its been five long years. She never

          came back to her family and friends. No one knows where he keeps her. We do know she is somewhere in OC. Possibly Santa Ana or Newport Beach. She doesn’t know how to escape or is in such mental bondage she won’t even try. God help her and hopefully Mike Chafitz will die.
