FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A thief used a stolen identity to rent a car through Enterprise Rent A Car on Sept. 13, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

An employee of Enterprise, 5445 Atlanta Highway, told deputies the company was a victim of financial card fraud.

The employee said a man used a Georgia driver’s license and a USAA American Express credit card under the same name to acquire a 2013 Chrysler 200 three days earlier.

The man’s identification turned out to be fraudulent.

The real owner of the identity that the suspect used to rent the car had already reported his identity stolen to the Athens-Clarke County Police Department.

Alpharetta Police officers found and arrested the suspect Sept. 14 off Windward Parkway.

During the arrest, Alpharetta officers found and impounded the Chrysler and towed it to United Towing in Alpharetta.
