Husband-wife team accused of identity theft
Police have arrested a husband and wife team accused of identity theft.
Anand Jilall and his wife have allegedly preyed on at least 15 victims over the past two years. It is believed the couple opened as many as 25 bogus credit card accounts.
"We're not sure exactly how he found his victims," says public information officer Al Weissmann, of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. "We do [know] he was using the Internet to apply for these fictitious accounts."
Authorities have hauled away hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of merchandise believed to have been bought illegally from the pair's home on First Place.
The couple is facing state identity theft charges for the alleged crimes.
