In May 2014, a subject from Milwaukee, Oregon, who was staying in Medford, reported to the Medford Police that he had lost three debit and credit cards out of his wallet. The fraud department from his bank had called and advised the cards had been used as several Medford businesses resulting in a loss of over $5,000 at two Medford Stores.
On June 12, 2014, a Medford resident reported that his vehicle had been broken into and his wallet with credit cards were stolen. He immediately checked his accounts online and saw that fraudulent charges of over $10,000 had already been made at several Medford stores.
Surveillance videos from the fraudulent transactions were pulled and it appears that the suspects in these two events are the same people and now Crime Stoppers of Southern Oregon and the Medford Police Department are hoping that you can help us identify them. The only other information that we have is that they were driving a silver SUV car, possibly a Chevrolet Equinox.
Area law enforcement and Crime Stoppers of Southern Oregon need your help this week in locating convicted felon and wanted subject Michael Dean Simons.
On May 23, 2014, a Medford police officer stopped a vehicle on Stewart Avenue for a traffic violation. The driver provided the officer with the name of "Michael Dean Pinski." When the officer walked back to his patrol car to confirm the name and registration of the vehicle, the driver took off and eluded for several blocks. The vehicle was later found abandoned.
Further investigation by the officer revealed that the driver was actually Michael Dean Simons, a wanted subject out of Arizona. Medford Police believe that Simons has been here for several weeks. CLICK FOR THE FULL POST AND PHOTOS
