A man who police said posed as a real estate agent — selling the same building at 41-43 Orchard Street in Bridgeport, Conn., which he didn’t own, to two separate parties — was arrested yesterday in Maryland, after being wanted since 2003, according to the Connecticut Post. New Yorker Kassiem Miley, 36, was charged with two counts of identity theft and one count each of first-degree larceny, second-degree forgery, third-degree larceny and criminal impersonation. According to police, Miley claimed he was New York real estate agent Edward Blake and tried to sell the Orchard Street building twice, once to an agent from Longwa Realty and another time to an agent from ALO Realty. In both cases, he pocketed the funds and was never heard from again. Yesterday, Miley was pulled over by police in Towson, Md. for a motor vehicle violation, and police then determined that he was wanted in Connecticut. He is being held in lieu of $25,000 bond.
