Police: Pair used fraudulent line of credit to buy Best Buy electronics

Carlisle/West Shore

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Silver Spring Township police are asking for the public’s help to identify two suspects.

Police say the pair were in the Best Buy on Carlisle Pike around 3 p.m. Friday when they selected a Macbook Pro valued at $2,499.99, a 65-inch Sony 4K HDR ULTRA television valued at $999.99, and a Sony HTS350 soundbar valued at $199.99.

One of them fraudulently opened a line of credit in the name of Isaac Sparks and purchased the items, police said.

Police say the transaction was completed and the suspects attempted to load the items into a vehicle. Best Buy employees went outside to observe the suspects who intentionally covered the view of the license plate.

The vehicle appears to be a 2000 Toyota Avalon with a Pennsylvania license plate that has a 2 as the last number.

Anyone with information should contact Det. Andrew Bassler at 717-591-8240 or via email: abassler@sstwp.org.
