WINDSOR LOCKS - A 47-year-old Hartford man has been arrested on several identity theft charges following a month-long investigation into fraudulent credit card charges, police said.
Ronald Bonner was arrested at his home at about 6:30 a.m. today and charged with first-degree identity theft, two counts of second-degree identity theft, five counts of third-degree identity theft, fourth-degree larceny, four counts of credit card theft, two counts of criminal attempt to commit credit card theft, criminal attempt to commit identity theft and illegal use of a credit card, police said.
Police were informed about a month ago that several people's identifications had been stolen and someone was using stolen credit cards to purchase items and have them delivered to a Windsor Locks address, Police Chief John Suchocki said. Police traced the fraudulent charges to Bonner, he said.
Suchocki said an investigation into how much Bonner stole is ongoing and could result in additional charges.
