Greenwich Police have arrested a Brooklyn man in connection to an incident last July on Ashfield Lane in Greenwich.

Police say Wai Chung Khoong, 39, of Wst 9th Street in Brooklyn, NY, unlawfully accessed a customer’s retail account in Greenwich and made numerous purchases for delivery.

“He obtained a customer’s identity and then made a bunch of phone orders and waited until the packages were in route and then called up and changed the destination of the packages, which threw up red flags because the company realized the account information had been corrupted,” Lt Slusarz said.

One package was schedule to be delivered to Port Chester. Officers responded to the area and located Mr. Khoong who was taken into custody by police in New York. Greenwich Police then obtained a warrant for Khoong’s arrest.

Police extradited Mr. Khoong from jail in Westchester.

He was charged with Forgery 2, Criminal Impersonation, Identity Theft 1, Receipt from Illegal Use of a Credit Card, Less than $500 on Payment Card Fraud, Less than $500 on Revoked Payment Card, Larceny 1 and Criminal Attempt Larceny 1.

Khoong’s bond was set at $150,000, which he was unable to post. He has a date in Stamford Superior Court.
