KPD Searching for Free-Spending Downtown Fraud Suspect
Not only is this suspect accused of a car prowl, but apparently he had the bravado to use the victim's information to apply for credit.
Kennewick Police are searching for this suspect, who on Wednesday March 3, allegedly broke into the victim's work truck, stealing his wallet and and company credit cards.
Then, according to reports, including information from the victim himself, the suspect spent more than $1,000 in the Highland and Downtown areas of Kennewick. This photo appears to perhaps be at Farmer's Exchange? Police have not said where this surveillance image came from.
Then on Saturday March 6, the suspect used the victim's ID to apply for credit cards at Capitol One and One Main Financial.
He is described as having a longboard pointed at both ends, and a teal and aqua back pack. Reports indicate he has often been seen walking north on Washington street towards 1st. Ave. weekdays between 4:30 and 5PM. Anyone with any information is urged to call (509)-628-0333. All leads can be confidential.
Authorities urge people to not store anything of value either in plain sight or out of sight in their vehicles; items that can be seen through windows are an invitation for car prowlers. Police say the chances of theft-fraud are many times higher if you leave wallet or purse in vehicle--even if hidden.
Here are some other area fraud suspects. Some have been caught, some not.
