Jocelyn Kirsch, one half of the “Bonnie & Clyde of ID fraud” duo, was arrested Friday for identity theft after Jocelyn and roommate Edward Anderton burglarized their neighbors condos and opened fictitious lines of credit under fake IDs they created using high-tech equipment in their own apartment.

Jocelyn Kirsch, 22, and Edward Anderton, 25, who were both residents of the exclusive Belgravia Condos at 1811 Chestnut Street in Philadelphia, were arrested Friday on charges of stealing some of their neighbors’ identities and establishing credit lines in their names.

The duo also burglarized at least two of their neighbors’ apartments and then faked Georgia state driver’s licenses so they could open credit card accounts.

Edward Anderton and Jocelyn Kirsch were charged with identity theft, conspiracy, unlawful use of a computer, forgery and a slew of other offenses, said Lt. George Ondrejka of Philadelphia’s Central Detectives.

Jocelyn Kirsch is a Drexel University student who is a former member of the sorority Delta Phi Epsilon, according to a Drexel Web site.

Edward Anderton is a 2005 University of Pennsylvania graduate who was fired from his analyst job with Lubert-Adler Real Estate Funds.

Both were arrested at a UPS store as they tried to pick up a lingerie package they had ordered from England using a credit card in a new neighbor’s name.

Cops said the couple trotted the globe, furnished their apartment and bought the latest in electronics with their newfound credit. They traveled to Paris, Hawaii, and luxurious vacation spots such as the Turks & Caicos Islands.

Kirsch’s walk-in closet was bursting with so many designer clothes, shoes and handbags that cops couldn’t step inside, said a police source, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Kirsch and Anderton, who moved into the two-bedroom, $3,000-a-month rental in June, were described by a police source as the “Bonnie and Clyde of ID fraud.”

“There is no physical means of support,” the source said.

After obtaining a search warrant, cops found three safe lock boxes in their apartment and confiscated $18,000 in cash, a Rolex watch, counterfeit Georgia state driver’s licenses, credit cards in the names of neighbors, and a 2005 article from the Daily Pennsylvanian – Penn’s newspaper – on “How to Spot Fake IDs.”

They also found old billing statements for one neighbor and the passport of another, both apparently taken during burglaries, police said. The couple used the signature from the passport on one of the fake driver’s licenses.

Investigators seized four computers, including two laptops; two copiers; a scanner, and an industrial-size machine that manufactures driver’s licenses. They also found Spector spyware, which monitors computer use.

Police found one newly created fake driver’s license soaking in a bin of fabric bleach to give it an aged look, they said.

The couple also had copies of the mailbox keys of every resident at Belgravia Condos, 1811 Chestnut, and copies of door keys to about 30 percent of the building’s apartments, the police source said. Police also found a picklock set.

Bail was set at $25,000, and Kirsch’s father Steven Kirsch came up from Winston-Salem, NC, and paid a percentage of it. Jocelyn was released about early Sunday morning and Anderton was expected to be released later in the day, police said.

Police also said they expect to rearrest Edward Anderton and Jocelyn Kirsch on additional burglary charges.
