The suspect obtains birth certificates from various counties in Washington, then uses the documents to get Oregon Photo ID Cards, which he sometimes uses to get Washington ID Cards. The suspect then opens a checking account in the area, where the ID Card is obtained and over nights the new checks, which he writes extensively for approximately $100 purchases, generally at chain stores. He will later take the items back, in another city, for a cash refund.
The suspect is a white male with a dark complexion, who is possibly mid to late 40's as he frequently uses identities with dates of birth between 1954 and 1957. The suspect is approximately 5'5", 260 pounds, with salt and pepper gray hair, glasses at times, and walks with a cane.
Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in this case, or any unsolved felony crime, and you need not give your name. Call Crime Stoppers at (503) 823-HELP.
