Police Log Oct. 17: Identity theft, bullet found in wall, notary arrested

A Pennsbury Township man was the victim of identity theft last month. State police said an unknown suspect obtained the victim’s personal information and tried to buy a Mercedes-Benz from a dealership in Columbia, Mo. The suspect also opened a fraudulent auto insurance policy from Progressive.

A Chadds Ford resident also had his identity stolen but is none the worse for wear. Police said the 66-year-old’s identity was used to rent a vehicle in Las Vegas, Nevada on Aug. 22. However, his finances were not used for the transaction so he’s not out any money, police said.

Someone stole scrap metal valued at an estimated $300 from a site in the 300 block of Wilmington Pike on Oct. 10.

Someone fired a gold-colored bullet that wound up embedded in a wall of a room on Running Road in Concord Township, police said. According to the report, the incident happened sometime between Sept. 24 and Oct. 6.

State police from the Avondale barracks said Elicia Maldonado, also known as Elicia Zapata, 30, of King of Prussia, was arrested in Kennett Square for selling a vehicle from a vacant dealership on Oct. 2. The suspect is a notary who runs State Street Motors, police said.
