Three facing identity theft charges in Southington


SOUTHINGTON — Three people from New York face charges after police say a woman attempted to use a false identity to buy over $2,000 worth of cellphones and accessories from BJ’s Wholesale on Wednesday.

Denise Altagracia Cabrera, 19, of New York, N.Y., was charged with criminal impersonation, third-degree identity theft, attempt to commit third-degree larceny, and interfering with police. Edward Antorchely De Los Angeles, 26, of Bronx, N.Y., and Antonio Fabian Radhames, 23, of Yonkers, N.Y.. were both charged with conspiracy to commit criminal impersonation, third-degree identity theft and third-degree larceny.

Police were called to BJ’s Wholesale, 75 Spring St., around 2 p.m. for a report that Cabrera was at the Verizon Wireless kiosk trying to buy two cell phones and accessories valued at a little over $2,000, said Sgt. Jeffrey Dobratz. When police talked to Cabrera, she gave a false name and address.

Police learned Radhames and Angeles gave Cabrera the fraudulent information, Dobratz said.

Cabrera and Angeles were arraigned in Bristol Superior Court on Thursday. Cabrera’s bond was set at $35,000 and her case was continued to May 10. Angeles’ bond was raised to $75,000 and his case was continued to May 24. Radhames was not arraigned on Thursday.
