Two Arrested in Connection with AT&T Fraud Scheme in Sussex County

Posted: Updated:

FRANKFORD, Del.- Delaware State Police have arrested two men in connection with AT&T schemes involving fraudulent package retrieval in Sussex County. 

Troopers have been investigating a series of cases earlier this month October. Police said suspects create fake cellphone accounts by stealing a person's identity, then ship cellphones to an address via FedEx or UPS. Police said the suspects had a tracking number, then went to the location, took the package and the cellphones.

Police said that on Oct. 29, troopers were investigating a complaint on Shadow Grove in Frankford when they received a suspect's car description. It was a red Toyota Camry with New York tags, according to police. The car was found in the area and a traffic stop was initiated.

Police arrested Jeison Canderlario and Felix Villa-Candelario, both 23, and of New York. Police said they found inside the Camry two new AT&T Samsung cellphones still in the box.

The suspects were taken into custody. A search warrant was obtained and police found 10 AT&T Galaxy Note 10+ cellphones in the car. 

Both were charged with stolen property over $1,500, second-degree conspiracy, two counts of third-degree conspiracy, and five counts of third-degree criminal trespass.

Jeison Canderlario and Felix Villa Candelario were committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution on $2,505 secured bond.
