ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-- A missing St. Louis County attorney was arrested over the weekend in New York City after he walked off a plane from Istanbul, Turkey. A Federal Grand Jury indicted Jeff Witt on felony aggravated identity theft and bank fraud. He obtained a fraudulent $100,000 loan from his mother's Des Peres home.

There are so many complaints against Witt, the Missouri Supreme Court suspended his law license. He may soon return to St. Louis to face the growing cases against him.
