Police ask for help identifying ID theft suspect
The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office hopes the public can help identify a man who allegedly broke into a vehicle in March, snatched two purses and used stolen credit cards at multiple local businesses.
On March 3, deputies responded to a report of a theft from a vehicle at The Expo in Central Point, where a suspect stole the two purses, which contained multiple credit cards and cash.
The suspect used the stolen cards at Lil Pantry, Chevron and Dollar General stores in Rogue River, along with a 7-11 and Carl’s Jr. in Grants Pass, said sheriff’s Sgt. Julie Denney.
The charges, totaling about $300, started the same day, Denney said.
The man reportedly tried to charge an additional $300 to one of the cards after the owner alerted the bank, but it was declined.
The man is described as a heavyset white male in his 30s or 40s with a shaved head. He drives a white and gold early 1990s Ford pickup with an extended cab. Surveillance footage could not make out a license plate on the vehicle.
Anyone with information about the case can contact Deputy Tom Hohl at 541-774-6800. Tips can also be submitted on the sheriff’s department website, http://jacksoncountyor.org/sheriff/Safety/Can-you-ID.
