ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The Albuquerque Police Department is seeking the public’s help in catching thieves that broke into mailboxes and stole information from two New Mexico residents.
The suspect has purchased thousands of dollars with fake ID’s and fraud credit cards, according to police.
Officers say it all started with a break-in of a mailbox outside a Northwest Albuquerque car dealership that had sensitive information in it. Since then, numerous fake accounts were opened up in their name.
“This case is particularly bad because this individual was able to get into two documents that had everything spelled out for him ready to go,” said Officer Tanner Tixier.
The suspect is believed to be driving a white, single cab utility truck. The suspect was seen leaving the Target on Hotel Circle recently.
He’s also taken his shopping spree to other stores.
“He’s racked up charges at Lowes Home Improvement, Home Depot, Targets and Best Buys so far,” Tixier said.
People are asked to call 843-STOP with any information.
