Bellevue police are asking for the public’s help in finding a member of a nationwide theft operation who is suspected of stealing credit cards from people in Bellevue, Lynnwood, Renton and Woodinville.

Hector Secundo Molina-Escobar is believed to be part of a traveling group of about a dozen identity thieves operating across the country. Detectives in Bellevue say he is responsible for fraudulent purchases in excess of $10,000 in the Puget Sound region.

According to a Bellevue police news release, Molina-Escobar is suspected of stealing wallets from purses at grocery stores and popular lunch destinations, then immediately using stolen credit cards to make expensive purchases.

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for any tip leading to the arrest and prosecution of Molina-Escobar. Anybody who knows where he is urged to phone 800-222-TIPS or email Bellevue police at pdtipline@bellevuwa.gov. Tips are confidential, police say.

Bellevue police say there are warrants out for Molina-Escobar in seven states.
