Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa announced Monday that 37-year-old Lasean Harps of Jersey City faces charges of impersonation and identity theft; theft by deception and fraudulent use of a credit card. He also says Harps’ 31-year-old girlfriend, Courtney Wilson of Jersey City, faces charges because she allegedly gave false information to state police detectives.

Chiesa says Harps, who has several aliases, had used the credit card at dozens of businesses throughout New Jersey and at least one location in New York City since September. Overall, Harps allegedly made $85,000 worth of unauthorized purchases.

Authorities say Harps would face a lengthy state prison sentence if convicted on all the charges.
