    "KUSA - A Boulder eye doctor can now add "sleuth" to his resume after he discovered who he thought was a common thief could be an infamous con artist."

    "Dupuis and his father are optometrists at the EyeCare Center of Boulder. After someone stole nearly $1,200 of eyeglasses from them, Dupuis decided to become a detective."

    Snip

    "The doctor reported the case to police, but misdemeanors aren't a top priority. So he decided figure out who the man in the video was on his own.

    Dupuis found the frames on eBay, with the serial numbers matching the frames from his store. He decided to buy something else from the man's account, hoping the purchased package would have a name and address."

    Snip

    "Hogue, 55, has a rap sheet dating back to the 1980s and, according to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, he has nine known aliases.

    Time Magazine puts Hogue on a list of the top 10 impostors. One of his first schemes was getting into Princeton University using a fake name and fake story."
