Detectives Seek Help Identifing Identity Theft Suspects

August 26, 2005 00:00

  

Investigators from the Regional Economic Crime Investigation Center (RECIC) are seeking the public’s help to identify three suspects responsible for more than $20,000 in identity theft-related crimes in the past six months. The suspects have gone into several banks and retail businesses presenting checks and credit cards stolen during business burglaries that occurred throughout Portland and Southwest Washington. The three suspects are acting independent of each other and may or may not be aware of each other’s activities. The suspects may have used wigs, hats, and make-up in an attempt to disguise their identity.

Anyone with information is asked to call RECIC Detective Catherine Carroll at (503) 823-0456.

This investigation is continuing.
