HOBART — A man used another person's identity to buy a computer with their store credit account, police said.

At noon on June 27, Hobart police responded to a fraudulent purchase reported at a business in the 2400 block of East 79th Avenue.

An employee told police that a man bought a computer worth about $1,700, allegedly using someone else's store credit card account to make the payment.

The man allegedly had a fraudulent license with the victim's name along with other identification information to make the purchase, police said. The victim told police that he didn't give anyone permission to use his name and information to make the purchase.
