A 22-year-old Woodbury woman used a stolen ID to buy several iPhone 14s and luxury watches, Wallingford police say.
Audrey Bennett was arrested on May 1, and charged with multiple offenses including criminal impersonation, identity theft, and larceny.
Police say they got a complaint from someone who believed their personal information was used to open an AT&T account and purchase a new iPhone 14 after their wallet had been stolen from their car back in December 2022.
Several days later on Jan. 30, 2023, police say someone tried to open two credit accounts in the victim’s name with two different credit card companies.
On Feb. 13, 2023, Officers were notified that the suspect opened a fraudulent account in the victim’s name at another bank and that someone attempted to take over the victim’s bank account at a local branch in Meriden.
The suspect tried to obtain a new debit card for the account, presented an identification in the name of the victim, and physically matched the victim’s description.
The suspect could not provide the necessary information to complete the banks' security questions to confirm the victim’s identity.
The suspect left the bank without getting new debit cards or withdrawing funds. On Feb. 21, 2023, the suspect purchased two more iPhone 14 Pro Maxes at a T-Mobile store in Meriden. The suspect used the personal identifying information of the victim to purchase both phones.
Officers discovered that on Jan. 6, 2023, the suspect used the victim’s information to purchase two Bulova watches at Zale’s Jewelers in Trumbull.
Bennett was released on a $21,000 bond.
