A California man was arrested Sunday after police said he tried to purchase a $12,000 watch with a fake ID.
Patton Township police said Phil Nguyen, of Garden Grove, Calif., attempted to buy a $12,000 Rolex on Friday at Kranich’s Jewelers. Police said Nguyen wanted to finance the purchase and presented false identification at the store.
When he returned Sunday to complete the transaction, Kranich’s employees called police. Nguyen was found to be in possession of a fake California driver’s license, police said.
He faces charges of identity theft, forgery, theft by deception and access device fraud. He was taken to Centre County Prison to await arraignment.
