Delaware State Police are looking for two men suspected of opening false credit account using stolen identity information.


    Detectives with the Delaware State Police are asking the public’s help in locating two men suspected of stealing identity information from a senior citizen.

    The men obtained the data on a 66-year-old Rehoboth man some time on or before June 18, said police spokeswoman Cpl. Jaime Dorsey-Sterner. They then opened a Kohl’s department store credit account and used the account to buy more than $1,000 worth of items from the stores in Dover and Middletown. They also tried, unsuccessfully, to open other accounts under the victim’s name.

    Police are circulating video surveillance images of the men in the hopes they will be recognized and information provided to authorities, Dorsey-Sterner said.

    Anyone with information on who these men could be is asked to contact state police at 302-856-5850, or Crime Stoppers at 800-TIP-3333, or online at www.tipsubmit.com.
