After Tri-Cities capture, alleged identity thief will face charges in Bellevue

A man wanted in connection to an identity theft operation uncovered earlier this month was picked up in the Tri-Cities by investigators Wednesday morning, according to a release from the Bellevue Police Department.

The department received a tip on the whereabouts of Patrick McCabe from a viewer of "Washington's Most Wanted." The show aired a segment on McCabe July 19.

The tip led investigators to a residence in the Tri-Cities area of Washington. Plans call for McCabe to be transported to Bellevue for charges related to identity theft and fraud.

A patrol officer discovered a cache of dozens of forged IDs and credit cards — and hundreds of forged checks — in a 126th Place Northeast condominium earlier in July while investigating the reported theft of road construction signs.
