Authorities in Long Island have offered a $5,000 reward leading to the capture of Nicholas Citron, who police allege used a phony identification to steal two expensive puppies from a pet store. On Tuesday, the Suffolk County Police Department included Citron’s name on the “Most Wanted” list.
According to the New York Post, Citron opened a line of credit using another person’s name and address to pay for two Yorkshire terriers from the Canine Corral on New York Avenue in October. The puppies were valued at $4,500.
The scam was discovered after Citron left the shop. The suspect is now wanted for third-degree larceny, violating probation for first-degree attempted robbery and on felony warrants for identity theft and possession of a forged instrument in the second degree.
Citron is described as 5′ 4″ and weighing about 175 pounds. He also has a tattoo on his left hand.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Suffolk County Crime Stoppers line at (800) 220-TIPS, through the app P3 Tips or online at http://www.P3Tips.com.
