Members of the Scarsdale Police Department were dispatched to the Scarsdale Shell gas station on Scarsdale Avenue on Monday, Aug. 6, when 27-year-old Kaspars Giberts attempted to pick up a package, which was not in his name.

Police said that the investigation into the suspicious incident determined that the item in the package was allegedly fraudulently purchased using the information of an identity theft victim’s personal information. It was also determined that the package was re-routed from the victim’s address to the gas station for Giberts to attempt to intercept it.

Further investigation found that Giberts was also allegedly in possession of the fraudulent government Visas.

Giberts was arrested by police and charged with a felony count of criminal possession of a forged instrument. He is due in court at an undisclosed date to answer the charge.
