NORTH COVENTRY PA – A 19-year-old Oakland Gardens NY woman, and two New York males who are considered juveniles by age, were arrested Monday (Ja. 8, 2018) and charged by North Coventry police with identity theft, theft by deception, and access device fraud after they allegedly used fraudulent credit cards to buy merchandise at the Kohl’s department store in Coventry Mall, West Schuylkill Road.
A Kohl’s loss prevention team reported the alleged crimes to the police on Dec. 13, when the holiday shopping season was in full swing. It identified an Asian female, Fan Yang, and the juveniles – whose names were not released – as having used the Kohl’s cards to illegally obtain merchandise of significant value.
The police department website stated Yang allegedly purchased goods valued at about $409; one of the juveniles obtained merchandise valued at $1,129; and the second bought goods valued at about $485.
The trio wasn’t caught in the township, however, or by township police.
The three instead traveled to Warminster Township, Bucks County, and arrived at another Kohl’s. They were nabbed by Warminster police, the North Coventry department reported, and were arrested there on additional charges as well.
