SOUTH HACKENSACK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Police have arrested a New York man after he was allegedly found with 33 fake identification and 13 credit cards after trying to use a fake card to purchase $10,000 in flooring at a New Jersey retailer.
Authorities say Anand Clifton Persaud, 60, gave a manager at Lumber Liquidators in South Hackensack a fake California ID with a matching Chase Visa card, and was apparently intoxicated while attempting to make the purchase.
Police responded to the scene and arrested Persaud on charges of credit card fraud, identity theft and hindering apprehension.
Further police investigation revealed 32 other identification cards with Persaud’s face on them, authorities say.
Authorities say Persaud was sent to Bergen County Jail with a National Crime Information Center warrant out of Miami-Dade, Florida.
