On January 10, 2019 the Lebanon Police Department received a report from a Woodstock, Vermont resident regarding possible credit card and identity fraud that had just taken place at two stores in Lebanon. The victim stated that his wallet had been stolen from a fitness center in Woodstock, VT and shortly thereafter, charges started to appear on his credit card. An investigation determined that an unknown subject went into Best Buy and Walmart and purchased several expensive electronic items with the victim’s credit card. The subject purchased two Mac Books and three iPads with the stolen card. The total loss exceeded $5,000.
The investigating officer was able to determine through surveillance video that the same male subject was responsible for both transactions. He is described as a white male in his 40’s, wearing a white hat, black North Face jacket, blue jeans and white sneakers. The subject was seen leaving in a white Toyota Tacoma pickup truck with an unknown registration.
The Police Department is asking anyone who may have information about the identity of the male featured in the photographs to call Lebanon Police Officer Willie Harden at 603-448-1212. Information can also be submitted anonymously to our Tip Line, 603-448-CLUE, or online at LebanonNH.gov/CLUE.
