A Montgomery County man is facing federal identity theft charges after a woman's searches for a deceased relative on ancestry.com discovered someone else had been impersonating them for over 20 years. 44-year-old Jon Vincent of Lansdale has been charged with one count of aggravated identity theft. In 1996, Vincent escaped from a halfway house in Texas. He went to a cemetery to find someone born around the time he was and discovered Nathan Laskoski. Laskoski had died in December 1972 at just 2 months old. Vincent obtained a birth certificate and Social Security number and began to live as Laskoski. Last year, a woman searching on Ancestry.com started to see current records for her long deceased nephew pop up including marriages, divorces, and residences in several states including Pennsylvania. She contacted authorities. The feds were able to track down Vincent who used Laskoski's information on bank accounts, loans, and more. He faces heavy fines and lengthy prison time.

Three Temple University students were robbed in an armed home invasion overnight in an off-campus apartment. It happened around 2 a.m. on the 1800 block of North Bouvier Street. Three intruders burst through the front door of the basement apartment and ordered the students to the ground. They were armed with a knife and a gun and were wearing black masks and dark clothing. They took cell phones, keys, wallets, and $880 in cash. No one was injured. The resident and his two friends, all in their 20's, had just returned from the bar and thought they had locked the door. Police are looking for area surveillance video to track down the suspects.

An 88-year-old man was tied up and robbed during an armed home invasion in Philadelphia's Bustleton section early Wednesday morning. It happened around 2:30 a.m. on the 9600 block of Chapelcroft Street. Pete Labuda believes he was set up by some young people that had initially befriended and helped him. This morning a woman knocked on the door and when Labuda opened it two men rushed in. They tied him up and stole a firearm, a safe containing almost $30,000 in cash, jewelry, a cellphone, and the victim's 1985 baby blue Cadillac Seville with PA plates GYL 3356. He was eventually able to untie himself and go to a neighbor's for help. He was not injured. Police are looking into the woman that had befriended Labuda earlier and has been in and out of the house before.
