On 5/14/21,  a male and female subject entered a jewelry store in Newark, DE at approximately 7:00 p.m., and asked to see several watches.  They ultimately selected two watches.  The female indicated that she had an account with the store.  She produced a New Jersey drivers license with a matching name as the account as well as the correct last 4 digits of the social security number.  The sales associate was able to process the transaction totaling $2,824.
