PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A 38-year-old man labeled “a prolific, wanted identity thief” is on the run after authorities said he used a stolen ID to buy a $36,000 Dodge Charger on Friday.
Anatoly V. Kutsar bought the car from a local dealership in Clark County. When detectives closed in, he fled in a gold 2002 Nissan Maxima with a Washington plate of BWC 5287, officials said.
