New Canaan police are investigating possible identity theft after a woman reported June 16 that her address was used for a UPS delivery.
The Oenoke Ridge complainant told police that when she arrived home June 13, she found a UPS notice on the door stating the company attempted to deliver a package, according to the report.
She told police that no one in the house was waiting for a delivery but she filled out a UPS form left at her home indicating she wanted the package the next day, police said. When the package was not delivered June 14, she contacted UPS and learned that it was picked up at the company's facility in Norwalk, the report states.
A UPS representative told her the name on the package was that of another woman, according to police, and suggested she file a complaint because the name that was used likely was that for someone who had her personal information stolen.
New Canaan police said they would look into surveillance video from the UPS facility and contact Wireless Customer Solutions, from where the package originated.
