Served 9 years in prison, guess that wasn't enough.

A Romanian man who previously used a fraudulent ID impersonating Robert De Niro to get a loan from a bank was arrested again when police found more than 1,350 ecstasy tablets which he intended to sell.  

53-year-old Romanian man, Sorin Bulgaru, alias “Robert De Niro”, was first arrested and sentenced to 9 years in prison in 2011 on charges of using fraud and embezzlement when he and a friend used a fake ID with actor Robert De Niro’s name and Photograph to secure bank loans. The damage reported by authorities at that time was near 60,000 euros.

Shortly after he was released on probation, on Monday, June 8th the law enforcement in Iasi caught Bulgaru trying to sell 1,373 ecstasy pills. Police also found another 15 grams of fragments of ecstasy pills and a mobile phone in his apartment in the Nicolina neighborhood, where he lived alone.

After being arrested, Bulgaru appeared in front of the judges where he will now be held in pre-trial detention for 30 days with suspicion for high-risk drug trafficking.
