Worthington police last week received another report of suspects stealing personal identification to file false federal tax returns.
The latest report came from a physician who lives in the 200 block of East New England Avenue.
He said other physicians in his practice have had the same experience.
He said when a tax preparer tried to file his return April 10, it was not accepted because someone else had filed a return in his name and a refund had been sent.
Worthington police have received several similar reports in recent weeks.
Someone also stole the personal information of a resident in the 600 block of Morning Street and used it to try to open a line of credit to purchase an iPad. The attempted theft occurred May 21.
In other Worthington police incident reports:
• On May 18 or 19, someone drove a golf cart over trash in the 200 block of West Riverglen Drive.
• A resident in the first block of East Stafford Avenue reported the theft of a garden hose from a nearby building between May 19 and 21.
