Malachi Love Robinson is back in the news.

According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, Robinson, 23, was arrested Thursday.

Back in March, the owner of United States of Freight, in Delray Beach, told authorities that Love Robinson rerouted payments from the business to his own personal account, according to the arrest report. Love Robinson was a contracted employee.

The arrest report states the owner of United States Freights had documentation that more than $9,000 had been rerouted.

The owner of the freight company had screenshots of text message conversations with Love Robinson. He told Daniel O’Sullivan he “can’t say how truly sorry” he is and that he will pay the money back, according to the affidavit.

Love Robinson is charged with grand theft and organized scheme to defraud.

He was booked at 9:15 a.m. Thursday and bailed out just after 8 p.m.

Many may recall Robinson from a few years ago. At 18, he pretended to be a doctor.

His elaborate scheme began in West Palm Beach at a clinic on Congress Ave. where authorities first arrested the wannabe doctor.

In a matter of months, Love-Robinson had been exposed by his victims and the law, accused of stealing thousands of dollars and practicing medicine without a license.

He spent about 20 months in jail and was released in September of 2019.
