Santa Cruz County sheriff's investigators are searching for two suspects in connection with an identity-theft ring.

Hernan Coto, 33, and Jesse Jurado, 32, have been linked to an identity-theft ring that has victimized dozens of people in Santa Cruz County, including an 82-year-old woman whose credit cards were stolen during a burglary, Deputy April Skalland said.

Coto and Jurado were arrested on Jan. 7 by the California Highway Patrol in a stolen vehicle in possession of stolen credit cards and identity-theft items, but were released after posting a bail bond.

A warrant was issued for their arrest on Friday. Jurado is on probation for felony evasion of a peace officer and Coto is on probation for being in possession of narcotics while carrying a firearm.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Jurado and Coto should contact the sheriff's office at (831) 471-1121.
