Police: Man on house arrest stole thousands of identities online

A man already on house arrest for identity theft is back in jail on charges that he stole information from more than 2,000 people over the Internet. Sirvon Thomas, 22, used those people’s information to open lines of credit to buy computer equipment, which he then put up for sale on eBay, investigators said. He then accepted money but never delivered the goods, they said. “He’s a very enterprising young man,” Sgt. Bill Korinek said. “If he had put his energy and efforts into something legitimate, he could have done well.” After a five-month investigation, police arrested Thomas on Saturday and charged him with scheming to defraud and two counts of identity theft.
