MOONACHIE, N.J. -- A Bronx man who used an Ohio woman's credit card to order a 60-inch HDTV at the Teterboro Walmart was surprised to find Moonachie police waiting for him, authorities said.

The victim called borough detectives on Monday to report the nearly $700 purchase, Detective Anthony Fugnitti told Daily Voice.

She provided an order number and possible time for pickup, he said.

Around 9:30 p.m., security at the Route 46 store notified police that their suspect had arrived. Moonachie police cover all of Teterboro.

Moments later, Sgt. James McNeice, Detective Robert Pezzillo and Officer Vito Detrrizo arrested Justin Tejeda, 20, on charges of identity theft and credit card fraud.

Tejeda was being held on $15,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail.
