RALEIGH A man was arrested Tuesday on charges from Fuquay-Varina police that he used Social Security numbers from people in Iowa and Pennsylvania to get credit in their names and got merchandise worth $21,000 from several merchants.
Kayode Jimmy Fadamoro, 27, was charged with two counts of identity theft and three counts of obtaining property by false pretense.
Fuquay-Varina police had charged him July 28 with trying to get property by false pretense, and the new charges ranged from July 15 to that day, according to arrests warrants based on further investigation.
According to the charges by Detective J.S. Wenhart, Fadamoro used the Iowa person’s information to open charge accounts at Sears, Best Buy, Home Depot and Brooks Brothers and shopped there for merchandise worth more than $18,000.

The charges also said that with the Pennsylvania man’s Social Security number, Fadamoro was able to add himself to a Pennsylvania man’s Capital One Bank credit-card account, had a card mailed to his Raleigh home and used it to buy four Apple iPhone 6S units from a T-Mobile outlet on Plantation Center Drive.
Jail officials also charged Fadamoro with violating a parole that he began when he was released from prison June 18. He had been convicted Aug. 26 last year of drug possession with intent to sell.
The most-recent arrest warrants list Fadamoro’s address as 4337 Haverty Drive, but his booking records list 4704 Leafcrest Drive. Both are in Raleigh.
Because of the parole violation, Fadamoro was held without bail.
