Attempts To Fool FedEx Thwarted In Darien
A 26-year-old man faces a multitude of charges in Darien after police say he ordered laptop computers for delivery at town residences, then appeared at the door steps of those homes with a poorly made fake ID to receive them.
Ibrahim Musah was arrested by warrant on May 29, 2012 and charged with two counts of third-degree criminal attempt to commit larceny, two counts of conspiracy to commit third-degree criminal attempt, ID theft and criminal impersonation.
In two separate incidents, Musah tried to receive delivery of multiple HP laptops—first on May 4, 2012 at Parklands Drive (four laptops, valued at $3,359.96 total) and then on May 8, 2012 at Bayberry Lane ($3,512.69 total), according to Darien Police Capt. Frederick W. Komm.
Unfortunately for Musah, the same Federal Express delivery driver saw him at both homes, each time presenting a fake ID as though he lived there. The driver refused to hand over the packages, and noticed Musah driving a silver Audi station wagon with New York plates. The driver contacted police, who worked with HP security “and determined that a delivery was scheduled to occur in Stamford on May 11, 2012, to a resident of Rolling Wood Drive,” Komm said.
Darien and Stamford police collaborated to arrest Musah.
Police found Musah in the vehicle, with a fake ID saying he lived on Rolling Wood Drive.
Musah was charged in connection with the Darien incidents, released on a $25,000 bond and scheduled to appear June 8, 2012 in state Superior Court in Stamford, CT.
