RADNOR, Pa. (CBS) – Police in Delaware and Chester counties have now identified the man they’re looking for in connection with a series of credit card thefts from women’s purses at restaurants and bars along the Main Line.
The suspect has been identified as Danny Simmons (pictured), whose last known address is on Haverford Avenue in Philadelphia.
Radnor police say the 48-year-old man has been swiping credit cards from women’s purses and then using the stolen cards at department stores in the Exton area in Chester County.
Radnor Police Sergeant Andrew Block says they have surveillance of Simmons wearing the same Steelers shirt and distinctive plaid “Jeff” cap in the stores.
“We have warrants for his arrest in Radnor and West Whiteland Township for the receiving stolen property, the access device fraud and identity theft and in addition to that, Philadelphia police, they’re holding an armed robbery warrant for him as well,” Block said.
Block says Simmons was arrested by State Police in 2007 for a similar crime. He says the getaway car may be a 2002 Buick LeSabre. They consider Simmons dangerous.
