Police released surveillance video today of three men who allegedly stole a 68-year-old South Philadelphia resident’s identity and used it to open multiple fake credit card accounts between January and May.
Investigators are looking for the suspects, who they say used the accounts to make purchases at Home Depot, Target and Macy’s totaling over $100,000.
One suspect is described as a five-foot-ten, 190-pound black man between
40 and 50 years old with a beard and glasses. The second is of an
unknown race and was last seen wearing a tan hat and glasses, while the
third is an Asian man with black hair.
In the video, the men can be seen leaving Home Depot after one alleged fraudulent purchase in a white pickup truck with a ladder rack. They appear to be traveling with a small child.
Anyone with information is asked to call 911, submit a tip by calling 215-686-TIPS or texting PPD TIP (773847), or to contact South Detectives at 215-686-3013 or 3014.
