Man used dead cop’s ID to obtain cash with fraudulent credit card
PENNSVILLE — Police are searching for a man who allegedly used the name of a deceased California police officer in order to open up a fraudulent credit card account.
The suspect, who was captured on surveillance video Thursday in Salem County, allegedly went into a Pennsville bank and left with a $5,000 cash withdrawal that he obtained by using the fraudulent credit card, police told NJ.com.
The man in the surveillance images was found to be using a California driver's license that matched the fraudulent credit card and belonged to a Bakersfield, Calif. police officer who died last year, NJ.com reported.
Police have not released the identity of the California patrolman whose identity was stolen.
Police have released the images and are asking anyone with information to contact Pennsville Detective Detective Brian Streitz at 856-678-3089, ext. 524.
