Man Held on $50K Bond in Identity Theft Case in Orange

Police say a man allegedly tried to purchase two cell phones from another person’s account.

Officers responded to a fraud complaint at the Verizon Wireless store on the Boston Post Road in Orange earlier this month, police said.

Officers learned that the arrestee, Wilson Cabezas, 47, of New York City, had presented identification with his own photo, but another person’s name and information in an attempt to purchase two wireless phones using the other person’s account, police said.

Store employees recognized the transaction as fraud and contacted police and Cabezas was charged with second-degree identity, criminal impersonation, second-degree forgery, and criminal attempt at fourth-degree larceny.

He was held in lieu of a $50,000 bond.
