BORO PARK — The NYPD is looking for a man who took a package of cellphones from a Boro Park home after the homeowner’s identity was stolen to open a cellphone account.

On the morning of February 12, a Verizon package was delivered to a Boro Park residence in the vicinity of 40th Street and 15th Avenue. When the homeowner went to pick up the package, a black male approached and told him that the package was sent to him by accident. The black male then took the package, which contained cellphones, and fled the location in a vehicle driven by another person. The victim later discovered that his identity was used to open a Verizon account to order cellphones.

The black male is approximately 5 feet, 7 inches tall and 170 pounds. He has tattoos on both hands.
