Police are looking for two men who allegedly used a Vancouver resident’s Social Security number to open a credit card account in Wood Village, Ore.

The victim called police last week after discovering his or her personal information had been used to open a Kohl’s credit card and several fraudulent purchases were made at the store in Wood Village.

Video surveillance captured images of two suspects during the transactions. Anyone who recognizes either of the suspects is asked to contact Vancouver police Officer Clesson Werner at clesson.werner@cityofvancouver.us.
