Police seek man in connection with fraudulent debit card case

Multiple tips from members of the public have helped the Fort Kent Police Department to positively identify a man wanted in connection with a string of purchases made throughout The County using fraudulent debit cards.

The department released surveillance video images of the man to Fiddlehead Focus in late June, after cameras captured shots of a man and woman at a Fort Kent convenience store where the man allegedly bought items with a debit card that was created from stolen account information.

Police Chief Tom Pelletier said his department immediately began receiving calls identifying the man as Alan Dziob, 36, of Berlin, Connecticut. Officers later confirmed that the man in the video was Dziob and issued an arrest warrant charging him with theft by deception, according to Pelletier.

Dziob also allegedly used a fraudulently obtained debit card to purchase items at Walmart and Marden’s in Presque Isle, Pelletier said.

Police were able to identify the female companion in the surveillance video, but they have not charged her with any crime. They have declined to name her because she is a juvenile.

The investigation continues in conjunction with members of the Maine State Police and the Presque Isle Police Department.

Anyone with information about this case should contact the Fort Kent Police Department at (207) 834-5678, or state police Detective Reid Bond at 207-624-7076.
