Delaware State Police have charged three New York women with using fraudulently obtained credit cards to buy $6,000 in flat-screen TVs and other electronics. Police say 37-year-old Linda Bekye of Rochester, 29-year-old Nehanda Headley of Franklin Square and 23-year-old Tracy Clark of Jamaica were charged Monday with identity theft and forgery.

The Sears store at Concord Mall near Brandywine called police about 9:30 p.m. after the women bought some electronics and left.

Police caught up to the van and stopped it on Route 202. Inside, police found $6,000 in flat-screen TVs and other electronics allegedly purchased using fraudulently obtained credit cards.

Detectives are still investigating how the women obtained someone's identity and used it to get the credit cards.
