Investigators with the Bellevue Police Department are looking for help in identifying two suspects that went on a crime spree this past December.

The suspects stole credit cards at three different restaurants in Lynnwood, Woodinville and Bellevue, and then attempted to use the victims’ stolen credit cards to make fraudulent purchases at area stores.

On Dec. 9, 2017, two female suspects stole a wallet from a purse while the victim was dining at a Panera bread restaurant in Lynnwood. The suspects then used the stolen credit cards to purchase gift cards from a grocery store in Lynnwood.

That same day, the suspects went to Panera Bread in Woodinville and committed another theft, then immediately attempted to use the victim’s credit card at a store in Lynnwood.

Later that same day, the suspects stole a purse from a victim at Maggiano’s restaurant in Bellevue and used the stolen credit cards to buy gifts cards at a Bellevue grocery store.

The Bellevue Police Department is releasing surveillance images and video of the two suspects in an attempt to identify them.

Crimestoppers of Puget Sound is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of these suspects. Individuals with information about this case can contact Crimestoppers by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or may submit a tip online.
