San Francisco International Airport rental car fraudster jailed
January 23, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Denise Rohrbach

A 29-year-old San Francisco woman discovered with fake identification and drugs after trying to rent a car at San Francisco International Airport using a false driver’s license was sentenced to nearly four years in prison after pleading no contest to two felonies.

Denise Marie Rohrbach’s three-year-and-eight-month prison sentence will be split with 18 months in county jail followed by 26 months of mandatory supervision. She will also be ordered to pay restitution in an amount to be determined March 3. Rohrbach pleaded no contest to second-degree burglary and possessing stolen property. Prosecutors dismissed four other felonies.

Rohrbach was arrested Nov. 20 after officers from the San Francisco Police Department’s airport bureau were called to the rental car facility at the airport because a woman was trying to rent a vehicle with fraudulent identification. Rohrbach gave the officers the license, which turned out to be fake, and was also in possession of several other fraudulent pieces of identification, altered personal checks, credit cards, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

After her arrest, sheriff’s detectives figured out Rohrbach’s real identity and confirmed at least six more identity theft victims, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

There have been a string of arrests at the airport for identity theft-related crimes. The most recent was Jan. 18, when police arrested Elizabeth Aldrich, 38, for presenting fraudulent identification and credit cards that were not in her name to rent a convertible Mercedes Benz. It was also determined that she had two arrest warrants out of San Francisco on felony charges related to narcotics and fraudulent identification, according to police.
