A man who lives in the 2700 block of Kensington Place East told police Sept. 26 that he had been the victim of identity theft the previous day, when someone used his credit card to order nine sets of "old school bonds" -- items from the online multiplayer game RuneScape -- from a video-game company at a cost of $539.91.
The victim told police he did not have an account with that company and did not give anyone authority to make the purchases.
