On December 6, 2022 at 6:16pm, Officers took an identity theft report. The victim explained that his cell phone stopped working due to a false network SIM card change according to AT&T, and that the suspect started purchasing items from the new SIM card, which were traced to Hellertown.
The victim went to the AT&T store in Hellertown, where he observed the pictured young black male with a fake NJ ID card that had the victim’s name on it. The male then fled from the store. The victim further reported that several fraudulent purchases were made at local stores using his Apple Pay which was linked to the SIM card.
Surveillance footage was obtained from one of these stores (Murphy Jewelers at the Lehigh Valley Mall) of the suspect along with another black male.
If you are able to identify either of the pictured two males you may submit an anonymous tip through our Crimewatch Tipline or contact Detective Corporal Eric Marth at 610-625-8722 or email@example.com
