Police say NH man stole personal information and set up credit card accounts
NASHUA — A city man is facing drug and identity fraud charges after a months-long investigation involving fraudulent credit cards.
Police began their investigation on April 1 when at approximately 10:44 a.m. an officer took a report from a person that said two credit cards had be opened using personal information without that person's permission. Numerous charges totaling $25,000 were made using the cards.
Detectives were able to determine that Dylan Brodeur, 25, of 3 Pond View Circle, Nashua was the suspect and an arrest warrant was created.
Police arrested Brodeur about 8:44 p.m. Sunday. He was charged with two class A felony counts of theft by deception and two class A felony counts of identity fraud. Because Brodeur was found with heroin and oxycodone pills, he was also charged with two class B felony counts of possession of a controlled drug.
Broudeur was arraigned Monday in Nashua district court. He is being held on $20,000 cash or surety bail and is next scheduled to appear in court on June 15.
A class A felony is punishable by up to 15 years imprisonment and a class B felony is punishable up to seven years imprisonment, both exclusive of fines.
