This isn’t a Burlington story – but it helps understand how the identity thieves work – borders don’t matter to these guys.

An alert UPS driver was approached twice in the same day by a male looking to pick up a package from his truck destined for an address in the west end of Oakville on February 3rd 2016.

The UPS driver was suspicious of the identification the male produced, refused to confirm he had the package onboard his truck and continued on his deliveries.

UPS driver didn’t like the look of the ID he was shown – calls the police who arrest a man found to have numerous fake identity cards.

Later in day the male approached the driver a second time and the driver again refused to hand over the package, this time alerting police.

The suspect male was located by police in a vehicle parked in a parking lot at the Burlington/Oakville border, where he was arrested.

Multiple stolen credit cards and fraudulent identity were located in the vehicle.

Charged with Theft Under $5000, Possession of Counterfeit Mark, Unauthorized Use of Credit Card Data and Fail to Comply with Undertaking is:

Ikponmwosa OBAZEE 35yrs of Mississauga ON.

OBAZEE was held for a bail hearing on February 4th at Milton Provincial Court.

Police identified the contents of the package the accused wanted so badly – it was a product from an internationally known electronics Company.

The Regional Police have an excellent working relationship with UPS – when there is suspicion – the police get a call.
