As you see above, Apollo’s official mugshot has surfaced along with more details of his arrest.

Gayla St. Julien, the woman that named Apollo as the mastermind of this scheme, told police they first met around September 2009. She claims that she was recruited by a mutual friend of theirs, but that Apollo made the final decision to bring her aboard.

An investigation into the operation began in February 2012, when JP Morgan Chase Bank tipped authorities off to Gayla’s suspicious bank activity after she tried to open four accounts with two stolen identities. After more digging it was discovered that investigators had barely scratched the surface on this matter.

According to court documents, though, the case might be bigger than many people realized.

A a complaint filed by the U.S. District Attorney contains “a brief summary of a few out of more than forty (40) bank accounts identified in this investigation as fraudulent.”

Take a look at a few paragraphs from the complaint which give a good estimate of how through and involved Apollo’s crimes actually are:
