Police name Top 5 identity thieves in Fresno
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Fresno police have had so much success from naming their Top Five auto thieves, they're trying to duplicate it with the city's worst identity thieves.
Wednesday, they put out a list topped by Anthony Mazziliano. He has six felony warrants for his arrest and detectives believe he's stealing identities both in the city and in Fresno County.
The list includes three women and one other man -- all of whom have outstanding warrants. The hope is, by naming these suspects, detectives can crack down on a crime that can cost people thousands of dollars and affect their finances for years.
"We know that when we shine the spotlight on these individuals they're going to be less likely to continue to offend," said Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer.
