Someone in London had purchased a piece of Americana, a toy tractor from Ohio, with the credit card number of an Old Colony Road resident. Capital One credit card company called Wakefield police to report a case of identity theft. The criminal's tool was the Internet, a growing challenge for law enforcement all over the world.
