On June 26th, Desir sent a photo of the “stolen” laptop to USAA for their investigation. Their investigators used the embedded metadata from that photo to determine it was actually taken after the laptop was supposedly stolen. He admitted to the USAA investigator that the laptop was in a repair shop and was not stolen. USAA turned those transcripts over to police, who issued a warrant for Desir’s arrest.
