Bloomfield Township police are seeking tips to find a person wanted in connection with an alleged identify theft.

A township resident told police Sunday that Citibank had earlier sent him a letter confirming a new credit card that he never applied for, authorities said.

Bank officials “confirmed someone else used the victim’s identification to obtain and use this new credit card,” police said in a statement Thursday.

Investigators obtained a photo of someone using the fraudulent credit card at a Utica department store on Sept. 8.

Anyone who recognizes him or has information is asked to contact Bloomfield Township investigators at (248) 433-7755.
