Police received a walk-in report of identity theft. The 30-year-old victim told officials she obtained a copy of her credit report and discovered an unknown subject used her personal information in December 2007 to obtain medical services in Oregon. A total of $1,055 has been turned over to debt collection agencies in her name. The subject gave a false address, so the fraud was not noticed for five years. The woman said she has never visited Oregon.
Police were called to Zales, 4501 N. Main St., Wednesday, where subjects damaged the security bar to the gate on the east side of the store. The repair costs were estimated at $200.
Police were dispatched to Family Dollar, 2212 W. Second St., Tuesday, after subjects removed coolers, valued at $1,000 each.
Anyone having information about these or any other crime is asked to contact Crime Stoppers, 888-594-TIPS (8477). Callers may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward.
