The Petaluma Police Department is  attempting to identify a man suspected of vehicle theft and identity theft after allegedly renting and not returning equipment leased under false identification. 

A man on Saturday -- May 3 -- reportedly rented a flatbed trailer and a generator from Cal West Rentals in Petaluma, but after the items were not returned, Cal West Rentals determined that the suspect had used someone else's identity to rent the equipment. 

The investigating officer contacted the identity theft victim, who said he received calls from Hertz Rentals in Oakland and southern California, asking him about other rented equipment. 

The trailer is described as a 2002 Demco DT6000E flatbed car trailer, Cal. license 4AF199, and a Honda model EU2001 generator. 

If anyone recognizes or sees the suspect or the vehicle, please contact the Petaluma Police at 707-778-4372.
