West Haven police looking for three suspects in ID theft case
WEST HAVEN — Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying three suspects in connection to an identity theft case.
Police said the ID theft ring involving the people in the pictures who they said are responsible for stealing personal information from victims in Connecticut, New Jersey and as far away as South Dakota.
The stolen information was used to open numerous fraudulent credit card accounts. More than $25,000 worth of merchandise in stores from West Haven to Trumbull over a two month span using those accounts according to police.
“These persons either went into these establishments with false information to obtain a credit card or they received credit cards in other people’s names,” said Sgt. David Tammaro, spokesperson for West Haven Police.
Purchases were made at a store in the Westfield Trumbull , Home Depot in Orange and at WalMart, on Sawmill Road, in West Haven.
“The credit cards were actually mailed to a abandoned building here in West Haven,” said Tammaro. “So, somebody’s picking these credit cards up.”
Police asked that anyone who has information on the identities of any of these suspects is asked to contact Detective Robert Fazzino at 203-937-3903. All calls will be confidential.
