Vernon Hills police: Man charged with identity theft after attempted jewelry purchase

Police say a Chicago man attempted to open a line of credit and make purchases under someone else’s name while at Hawthorn Mall in Vernon Hills.

Brian A. Jones, 33, of the 4900 block of Washington Boulevard, Chicago, was charged Aug. 12 with identity theft and unlawful use of a credit card.

Officers arrived at 3:20 p.m. to Z Fine Jewelry, 511 Hawthorn Center, on reports of a suspicious person who attempted to open a line of credit in order to buy an expensive piece of jewelry, according to Kim Christenson, a spokesman for the Vernon Hills police department.

When talking to Jones, employees reviewed a credit card and Florida driver’s license, but ultimately chose to deny the application and flag it as suspicious, according to Christenson.
