Man Who Says He Predicted Sept. 11 Attacks Arrested
Comment: The last we heard of Vreeland, he had been 'disappeared' by the government.
A Michigan native who claims to have predicted the events of Sept. 11, 2001, was arrested by authorities in Iowa on Wednesday.
Delmart Vreeland, 38, of Rochester Hills, was wanted by eight Michigan jurisdictions, including Oakland County, for crimes like fraud and burglary, according to a report in The Daily Oakland Press.
Vreeland was captured by sheriff's deputies in Iowa's Franklin County after he stopped to refuel at a gas station.
Vreeland used a credit card at the station that had an alert placed on it by authorities in Colorado -- where he is wanted on child prostitution charges, according to the paper.
Authorities in Michigan, Colorado, Virginia, Canada and New York all want to speak with Vreeland, the paper reported.
Oakland County Sheriff's Deputy Michael Bouchard told the paper that Vreeland ran an identity theft ring in the Detroit area for a few years and has felony convictions for breaking and entering and receiving stolen property.
Vreeland used to live in Rochester Hills and worked at a company that refurbished computers in Troy, the paper reported.
He's reportedly considered a folk hero among conspiracy theorists who believe he is a spy for the Office of Naval Intelligence.
Shortly after the terrorist attacks, Vreeland apparently claimed that while he was in prison he wrote a note that foreshadowed the events of Sept. 11, 2001, according to the paper.
Government officials have reportedly denied that Vreeland ever served in the Navy.
