Detectives with the Kansas City, Missouri, Police Department took to a popular metro-area Facebook group Tuesday with a plea to help name an identity theft suspect.
And this one is a whopper.
In the post, police said officers are following up on an ID theft case from last summer.
Police believe the suspect used a stolen identity to purchase a $58,000 Ford Explorer from Thoroughbred Ford on July 23, 2020.
But the suspect made it slightly easier to follow his trail — he posed for a photo with his new purchase at the dealership.
Police made the post in the Stolen KC group, which helps spread word about thefts in communities across the metro area.
Anyone with information on this individual’s identity is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS.
