Bellevue Police say a couple who stopped to help a man fix his car, later stole his car and his credit cards while the man was in church.
On July 6th a Bellevue man was trying to fix a problem with the brake lights on his car while parked in front of his church at 37th & Giles Road. A man and woman in a red SUV offered to help and showed him how he could stuff his car keys up under the dash to fix the problem.
The keys did fix the problem, so the man left the keys up under the dash and left the car unlocked with his wallet and other items still inside. The man then went into church only to find later that the couple and his car were gone.
Bellevue Police say the male suspect in the case tried to use one of the victim's credit cards to buy more than $200 in gift cards at the Walgreens at 24th and L Street in Omaha. But the employees denied the purchase because he didn't provide ID.
Police describe the suspect as a man approximately 45 years of age, 5 feet 9 inches tall, 200 pounds, with reddish hair and a goatee moustache. If you recognize the man or have any information in the case please call Sarpy Crime Stoppers at (402) 592-STOP.
