Sheriff looking for suspected mail thieves

A pair of suspected mail thieves are on the loose, and the King County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in finding them.

Last month, the man and woman stole mail that included a new debit card and PIN. The stolen card was used in Federal Way, Tacoma, Tukwila and Puyallup, Sheriff’s spokesman John Urquhart said.

The victim, from SeaTac, had several thousands of dollars in fraudulent claims.

Anyone with information on the suspects, pictured above, is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at (206) 296-3311.
