A Glen Ellyn man was charged with attempted identity theft and possession of another person’s identification Tuesday, according to the DuPage County Sheriff's Office.
An investigation and a tip from a resident led to the arrest Tuesday of Mark Kozlowski, 18, of the 3 S 000 block of Cypress Drive, DuPage County Sheriff John Zaruba said in a news release.
A resident in unincorporated Glen Ellyn contacted the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office on June 25 and reported that while away on vacation it appeared someone had gone through mail and opened it up.
The resident contacted the sheriff after it was also determined that a bank card was missing from inside an envelope and having followed up with the bank, learned a number of unauthorized purchases were made with the newly activated card.
“Sheriff’s detectives continued the investigation into the identity theft and were following up on leads, when the detectives received a tip from a citizen, which led to the suspect being arrested and charged for the attempted identity theft," the news release said.
Kozlowski was charged with one misdemeanor count of attempted identity theft and one misdemeanor count of possession of another’s identification card. He was released on $1,000 bond. His next scheduled court date is Sept. 11.
