PD: Suspects collaborate in identity theft scheme

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – Virginia Beach Police believe three suspects worked together in an identity theft scheme at several local Sun Trust Banks.

Tonya Borman with the VBPD said three suspects conducted fraudulent transactions at Sun Trust Banks on June 28 and were able to obtain money from three different victim’s accounts.

Investigators think the suspects were somehow able to get personal information and account information from the victims, who all live in different cities in Florida, and then use it to make identification cards with their own photos. The ID cards were used to withdraw money from the victims’ accounts, totaling more than $25,000.

Borman said investigators also believe the suspects may be conducting similar criminal schemes up and down the East Coast.

Anyone with information regarding these crimes or the suspects is encouraged to call Virginia Beach Crime Solvers at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
