WESTAMPTON TWP. -- Police are seeking a young woman who used a fake ID, but not to buy booze or get into a bar.
She bought two Audis in someone else's name at a combined cost of $85,397, according to Westampton police.
The victim, a Pennsylvania woman, had two lines of credit taken out in her name by the woman pictured, who used the fake ID and the victim's social security number.
Westampton police said they've identified the suspect's accomplice, Arthur McCoy, and arrested him when he allegedly tried to buy a third Audi in Mercer County, but they need the public's help identifying the female suspect.
Police said the pair bought two vehicles -- an Audi A7 3.0 Prestige and a 2014 Audi Q7 SUV in two transactions on July 7 and 10 at the J&S Autohaus located at 1853 Route 541.
Both times, they presented fake Pennsylvania driver's licenses that used their photographs but had the personal information of two people who were victims of identity theft, police said. They had the female victim's social security number and other information that allowed them to get a line of credit to finance the vehicles, according to a release from police.
McCoy tried to purchase a third car at the J&S Autohaus dealership in Ewing Township July 14, but police said they arrested him there and recovered the 2014 Audi Q7 that the pair had previously bought.
The pair will face charges of identity theft and motor vehicle theft, police said.
Anyone with information about the female suspect pictured is asked to contact the Westampton Township Police Department Criminal Intelligence Division at 609-267-3000 ext. 144.
