Farmington Public Safety Department and the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday released a photo of two people who may be connected to at least 23 identity thefts throughout lower Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
Authorities want to talk with the man and woman about crimes spread over several stores and cities. According to a press release, suspects used the victims’ personal information and possibly a fraudulent Michigan driver’s license to apply for credit card accounts at Best Buy, Home Depot, Macy’s, Sears, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Kohl’s, TJ Maxx, and Victoria Secret.
Once the cards were approved, they charged more than $11,500 in purchases to the fraudulent accounts. Crimes occurred in Saginaw, Port Huron, Flint, Auburn Hills, Jackson, and Battle Creek in Michigan; Westlake, North Olmsted, and Strongsville in Ohio and Noblesville, Indiana.
If you have information and would like to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers, 1-800-SPEAK-UP. A cash reward up to $1,000 will be paid for information received through the anonymous tip hotline that leads to the arrest of the people responsible for these crimes.
