A Ghanaian man is wanted by the Kitty Hawk police in Dare County, North Carolina, USA for alleged identity theft.

The man, 27-year-old Stephen Okyere Budu is wanted for allegedly involving in at least a dozen cases of identity theft and credit card fraud in Kitty Hawk and other locations according to local media reports.

He is said to have lived in the town since May 2009 on a J-1 visa that allows a student to live and work in the US for 90 days. But since early July he has not been seen, according to police detective Brian Strickland.

The reports say, a search conducted at where he lived after a warrant was served on Friday found about $30,000 to $40,000 in electronic items purchased with stolen credit card information from victims scattered throughout the U.S., the police said.

Meanwhile, the police have notified US immigration officials.
