MESA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

Two suspects in a Phoenix identity theft case last summer remain on the run and police need help finding them.

Silent Witness is offering a reward of up to $1,000 leading to the arrests and convictions of the pair.

A man and a Hispanic woman, both in their mid-20s, are suspected of breaking into a woman’s vehicle parked at Planet Fitness at 320 E. Bell Rd. and stealing her wallet at 6:20 p.m. on July 26.

Several weeks later, on Aug. 10, the two suspects entered a Bank of America branch at 4402 E. Camelback Rd. at 2:50 p.m. The woman approached a teller and tried to use the victim’s personal information to withdraw cash from her banking account, according to Silent Witness Sgt. Jamie Rothschild.

When the teller started questioning the ID the woman had presented, both suspects ran out of the building and fled in a white, two-door vehicle equipped with a sunroof.

The Hispanic woman is described as 5’5” tall and weighs 120 pounds. She has brown hair.

The man is 5’10” tall. No further description was provided.

Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or 480-TESTIGO. People can also call Silent Witness detectives toll free at 1-800-343-TIPS. Your call will remain anonymous.
