Eugene police looking for burglary, identity theft suspects – The Register

Eugene police are asking for the public’s help in identifying two male suspects accused of stealing credit cards, jewelry and a work truck from a southwest Eugene home earlier this month, police said today.

The two men, described as being between 18 and 25 years old , are believed to have burglarized a home in the 2000 block of Hawkins Lane in southwest Eugene on July 13, Eugene police detective Rick Lowe said. The burglars stole jewelry, credit cards, power tools and a construction truck. The vehicle was later recovered by the Lane County Sheriff’s Office in northwest Eugene, Lowe said.

The homeowners were out of town attending the Oregon Country Fair that night, Lowe said.

Police also are looking for a female suspected of using the stolen credit card at the Orange Julius at Valley River Center, Lowe said.

So far, the thieves have put about $1,000 on the credit cards at six different locations in Eugene, including at Walmart, Lowe said.

Surveillance photos show the two men carrying two packs of Mason jars outside of Walmart. One of the men was wearing blue reflective plastic sunglasses.

Rowe said police are waiting for test results from DNA and fingerprint evidence collected after the burglary.

Anyone with information is asked to call Lowe at 541-682-5573.
