Police seek public’s help in ID’ing suspects in theft cases

By , Columbian Breaking News Reporter

Vancouver police are asking for the public’s help in identifying suspects in two separate theft cases that involved a suspect using stolen credit cards.

On July 30, officers took a report of a theft from a vehicle in which the victim’s wallet was stolen and unauthorized charges were made, according to the Vancouver Police Department.

Surveillance photos captured the suspect who used the stolen card, and police describe him as a white man in his early 20s, possibly having a goatee.

Anyone with information on the identity of the suspect is asked to contact Police Service Technician Simone McPoland at simone.mcpoland@cityofvancouver.us.

The other similar theft was reported on July 26, when a person reported that their wallet was stolen from a locker at Planet Fitness, 8024 E. Mill Plain Blvd, according to Vancouver police.

Surveillance photos captured an image of a suspect who police say used one of the victim’s credit cards.

Police described the suspect as a black man in his 20s, about 6 feet 2 inches tall, with a thin build and long hair in a ponytail.

Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to contact Officer Matthew Hoover at matthew.hoover@cityofvancouver.us.
