Bought and spent gift cards at same Howell store with stolen identities: NJSPD
Two men who allegedly used eight stolen identities to buy gift cards in the Howell Walmart last week - then used them to buy snacks in the store and fast food nearby - are wanted by township police.
According to authorities, the pair bought $1,250 worth of $150-dollar gift cards in the Route 9 store with the stolen identities - then used some of them to buy Gatorade and candy, not just once, but several times, before taking the rest to the nearby Chick-Fil-A.
