Guy arrested after stealing Nickelback drummer's identity

A bloke from America has been arrested after claiming to be Nickelback drummer Daniel Adair and then trying to purchase $25,000 worth of music equipment.

45 year old Howard Koenig was arrested on Feb. 28 on two felony charges of fraud.

He was caught out after police were told by a band security specialist that Adair “had his identity used to fraudulently order drum parts from a company in Vienna, Austria,” an affidavit told Loudwire.

Apparently the guy has been in trouble for fraud before when in 2009 he fraudulently collected $78,000 on behalf of another organisation

Koenig has been released from St. Lucie County Jail on $18,750 bail.
