Cops: Stolen credit card used to purchase $9K in auto parts

An unknown person purchased nearly $9,000 of auto parts from a local car dealership with a stolen credit card, according to a town police report.

A manager at a Route 58 car dealership said the person ordered thousands of dollars’ worth of parts, totaling $8,918.51, and had them delivered to an unknown location using FedEx, police said.

The dealership did not keep records of where the items were shipped to, but rejected the last suspicious order, police said.

Other dealerships were also targeted, the police report states.

Detectives are still investigating the incident.
