Authorities say on November 28th, the two individuals purchased two iPhones from the Verizon store at 1003 West Patrick Street, and then set up phone lines for each phone. They also made purchases at the JP Penny and Victoria’s Secret stores at the F-S-K Mall, opening credit card accounts using the victim’s Social Security number.
