Bellevue, WA: Hermes target of city-hopping ID thieves - one arrested
Two women are suspected of stealing a $9,000 handbag from Hermes in Bellevue as part of a highly organized theft ring whose members fly in and out of cities all over the country, ripping off high-end retail stores. The suspected thieves allegedly use stolen credit cards to buy the luxury goods. One suspect, 55-year old Lihua Li, was arrested on Tuesday. Li and the other woman allegedly used multiple fraudulent credit cards at Hermes on Sunday. One of those stolen credit card numbers belonged to Angie Dozer of Londonderry, Ohio, who directly contacted Bellevue Police. When one of the suspects returned to the Hermes the next day, a store manager called Police who made the arrest. "That's the best thing about it," Police said. If Dozer "hadn't called, we wouldn't have known about it, and the suspect would have been gone." Investigators believe the other woman has flown out of the area, which is why they're now asking for help from the FBI.
