EVERETTWANTED IN EVERETT —
An Everett man is hit hard by an identity thief:

Detectives say it started with multiple phone and mail accounts opened up in his name. Then, a big PayPal bill he was on the hook for. And then, police say it got thousands of dollars worse. “He started receiving packages with car parts in them and a $5,000 bill from Car Toys,” says Everett Police Ofc. Aaron Snell. “The investigation revealed that the suspect had actually gone to the Issaquah Car Toys on January 21st and the Everett Car Toys on January 27th, where the purchases were made with identification in the victim’s name.”

Detectives say the suspect was driving a dark gray or dark green 2002 BMW M3.
