BRISTOL — A city landlord was arrested on Tuesday for identity theft and larceny charges involving a tenant.
Bristol Police say Anthony Cammariere, who owns and manages multiple properties in the city, used information from a tenant application to open an account with T-Mobile.
The tenant called police when she received a bill with charges upwards of $1,300 in devices and services.
The Bristol landlord has had a history of violating health and maintenance code violations for multiple properties he owns in the city.
"Identity theft, unfortunately, is common," said Lt. Richard Guerrera of the Bristol Police Department. "You don't see a landlord doing it to a tenant, that's kind of uncommon. Unfortunately this landlord took advantage of this tenant."
Cammariere was charged with fourth-degree larceny and second-degree identity theft. He was released on a $2,500 bond and will appear in Bristol Superior Court on Sept. 30.
