Police have identified a wanted car prowler accused of stealing a wallet and going on a $1,200 shopping spree with the victim's credit cards.

Tips helped detectives identify the suspect as 27-year-old Vincent Matthew Yannello.

Police said Yannello has an active felony warrant for violating his parole. He is considered armed and dangerous.

Police believe Yannello broke into a car in the Hidden Springs neighborhood early in the morning on Nov. 4 and stole a wallet with credit cards and ID.

Within hours, he charged more than $1,200 on the victim's cards before they could be canceled, according to police.

Police said Yannello is a transient, but he is known to hang out in the Cedar Mill area of Washington County. He is believed to be driving a silver 1997 BMW Z3 convertible with Oregon plates 554GAP.

Yannello is described as 6' and 160 pounds with brown hair and hazel eyes.

Anyone who knows where he is or has other information about this investigation is asked to contact Sgt. Francis with the West Linn Police Department at 503-635-0238 or mfrancis@westlinnoregon.gov.

Anyone who sees Yannello should not attempt to stop him, instead call police.
