Accused of slashing woman's tires, stealing purse, using ATM cards

PUEBLO, Colo. - Pueblo Crime Stoppers is asking for the public's assistance in locating two identity theft suspects.

Pueblo Police responded to the 2100 block of Pine Street on Oct. 24 regarding a theft.  The victim stated that she had been shopping at Albertson's on S. Prairie and after she left the store, she noticed that she was being followed by a dark green 2000 to 2004 Oldsmobile or Buick sedan. 

The victim realized that she had a flat tire and pulled over in the 1700 block of S. Prairie, police said.  The green car pulled up behind the victim and a man and woman offered her a ride, which the victim accepted. 

The suspects drove the victim to her residence and stole her purse as they dropped her off, police said.  The suspects then used the victim's ATM card to withdraw cash at Loaf n Jug on Lake Avenue moments later.  It was later discovered that the victim's car tire had been slashed in the Albertson's parking lot.
