Grove City police said an employee of a business in the 3900 block of Brookhart Drive told police April 28 stolen credit card information belonging to a school in Nebraska had been used to purchase a sectional sofa.
A man placed a special order on March 24 to buy the sofa and have it delivered to what he claimed was his apartment in Worthington. The sofa was valued at $1,588 and delivered during the first week of April, reports stated.
The customer told the delivery driver to leave the sofa outside in front of the apartment because the residence was not ready yet.
After the delivery was made, the store received a call from a representative of the Nebraska school reporting the purchase had been made with the stolen credit card information, reports stated.
The man who purchased the sofa placed three other orders with the store and at least one of those purchases were made with a stolen credit card.
Police were trying to determine if the man is a resident of the apartment where the sofa was delivered, according to reports.
