Pair held in Wisconsin fraud probe may be divided

James JettMILWAUKEE -- A lawyer for a Byron Township man nabbed as part of a federal investigation into alleged loan fraud and identity theft indicated Thursday his client is part of a bigger probe in West Michigan involving former Alpine Township boat broker Michael Vorce.
William Burke, attorney for 29-year-old suspect James Jett, said he will argue to have the Milwaukee-based case moved to Michigan "as part of a larger proceeding that might be there."
Burke was speaking at a detention hearing for Jett and Vorce, 31, who were arrested last week in Chicago. The pair were taken into custody while picking up documents to secure a $391,450 loan to buy a luxury yacht using the name and faked tax returns of a Milwaukee attorney, according to a federal affidavit.
The men remained held without bail after the hearing.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Patricia Gorence said there are warrants for Vorce and Jett seeking their return to Michigan.
Vorce's warrant apparently stems from a drunken-driving case. In 2005, Vorce pleaded guilty to operating while visibly impaired after a crash that severely injured a man near East Beltline Avenue NE and the Int. 96 interchange.
He was fined and received two years on probation in that case after Kent County Circuit Judge Donald Johnston told Vorce he didn't "sense any malevolence or criminality on your outlook on life."
A judge in Michigan has agreed to let Vorce stay in Wisconsin for prosecution, Assistant U.S. Attorney Gregory Haanstad said.
Haanstad said he didn't have as much information on Jett's warrant, but it appeared to stem from an identity-theft investigation.
Vorce waived his preliminary hearing, but attorney Martin Pruhs said he will return to court next week with a proposal for Vorce's release.
"He is not a danger to the community," Pruhs said. "We have not seen any documentation of any wrongdoing by him."
Jett is due in court Sept. 18 for his preliminary hearing and to deal with the warrant.
Asked if Vorce is under federal investigation in Michigan, Pruhs said: "He is dealing with a lot of civil lawsuits. He's not been charged (criminally) with anything."
While Jett's attorney did not detail the nature of the "larger proceeding" involving his client, he did say it involves allegations the Milwaukee-based crime was committed by the men in Michigan using computers.
The FBI has said Vorce and Jett are being investigated for a multistate identity theft and bank fraud involving at least $2.6 million at four financial institutions.
Vorce has been the subject of a probe in West Michigan related to millions of dollars in bogus boat loans. No criminal charges have been filed related to this, and last year Vorce apologized to the banks involved, which filed civil cases against him in Kent County Circuit Court and seized his property.
A source familiar with the case said Jett, who has identified himself as a custom home builder, was in the process of buying Vorce's gated Alpine Township home. Vorce purchased it for at least $550,000 in 2004, according to township records.
Kent County records show a land contract between Vorce and Jett was made May 28 with the approval of banks that held liens on the property.
That deal resulted in Jett paying Vorce $108,725, which Vorce then paid to LaSalle Bank to prevent seizure of the property. After that initial payment, Jett was to pay an additional amount at a later date to take full ownership, a source said.
LaSalle had been moving to foreclose on the property, but the process has taken more than a year.
