Superior, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- The Superior Police Department is asking for the public's help in locating a suspect wanted for multiple car break ins and fraud incidents.

Officers have identified the suspect as Ryan Scott Birk. The suspect is thought to have been breaking into multiple cars in Superior, stealing items and eventually using stolen credit cards after the thefts.

Birk was detained by Duluth Police officers while he was allegedly in possession of multiple ID cards of reported theft victims. However, at that time, Duluth police officers were not able to confirm the thefts from the victims.

During a joint investigation with Duluth police, officers were able to positively identify that Birk was driving a pickup truck that had been reported missing last month in Superior and that he was allegedly in possession of stolen ID and other property.

The Superior Police Department is asking for the public's assistance in locating Birk.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Superior Police Department.
