DANBURY CT March 14 2017 – A Bronx woman was accused of identity theft at the Danbury Fair Mall Saturday evening.
Police said Ingrid Simmons, 53, opened an account at Lord & Taylor under a different name and spent hundreds of dollars.
Store security told police that employees were suspicious when they said Simmons constantly looked down at her phone as she filled out her name and birthday on a form to apply for an account at the store. After her account was approved, Simmons spent $438, police said.
Security called the name and phone number listed on the account, but the person who answered the phone said she was at home in New York, according to police.
Security then found three driver’s licenses on Simmons, according to police.
Police arrived and charged Simmons with larceny in the fifth degree, criminal attempt/identity theft in the first degree and identity theft in the third degree.
She was released on a $10,000 bond.
