KENNEBUNKPORT — Police in Kennebunkport arrested two suspects during a traffic stop in connection with the theft of credit cards in the town on Tuesday.

According to Craig Sanford, Kennebunkport Chief of Police, a Kennebunkport resident had observed a car and the suspects taking mail from mailboxes in town last week and saw the same vehicle and subjects on Tuesday and called police.

“The vehicle was located and stopped,” Sanford said. “It is believed the subjects would take credit card offers from mailboxes and apply for the card and return later to check for the new card. It is believed that the two had been in the area over the last several weeks.”

Police arrested Mohamed Salboy Wisman, 24, of North Brunswick, New Jersey, and Arnold Toro Koroma, 22, of Gaitherburg, Ohio.

Sanford said that Wisman was charged with operating a motor vehicle without a license and that Koroma was charged with receiving stolen property.

Both Wisman and Koroma were remanded to the York County Jail in Alfred and are scheduled to appear at the York County District Court also in Alfred on July 17 to answer the charges.

“The police department is recommending that residents check their credit history and watch for unusual transactions. If you should find a problem, it is important you contact your local police department as well as the credit card company,” Sanford said. “We believe that Capital One and Key Bank are the most likely companies that cards were obtained from.”

The investigation is ongoing and probably involves other communities, Sanford said.

To report suspicious activity, call the Kennebunkport Police Department at 967-2454.
