HANOVER — A man from New York has been imprisoned on allegations of using someone else’s identity to purchase a vehicle worth over $81,000.
On June 30, a Hanover Township Police Officer initiated a fraud investigation by contacting the Lexus dealership on Route 10.
Upon reaching the dealership, Hanover Township Police Officer Sean Coleman spoke with a manager who informed them that an individual had acquired a vehicle using another person’s information.
After a brief investigation, Officer Coleman discovered that Xiao T Si, 36, Bayside, had purportedly stolen someone else’s identity to buy the $81,913.00 vehicle.
When Si arrived at the dealership to collect the vehicle, he was apprehended and charged with various offenses, including knowingly exhibiting false ID, theft of credit cards, criminal attempt, forgery, wrongful impersonation, execution of documents by fraud, and hindering.
Subsequently, Si was confined to the Morris County Jail pending a scheduled court appearance.
