A man with an alias straight from “Monsters, Inc.” is on the run and wanted in two counties.

Kim Potter is wanted by the North Platte Police Department and Cozad Police Department.

In a Facebook post Thursday morning, North Platte police said Potter stole several vehicles over the last two days, using “credit cards that don’t belong to him” in the meantime.

“Potter is stealing cars to get someplace, dumping the vehicle and then stealing another in the vicinity to get to his next destination,” officers wrote in the Facebook post.

Police said that Potter has also gone by the name of Mike Wazowski — the name of the famous one-eyed green monster in the 2001 Pixar film — in addition to Mike Potter, Kim Hatch and Mike Hatch.

Police are urging residents to lock their vehicles and take their keys out. People are asked to call law enforcement if they see Potter.

More information, including Potter’s age, is expected later on Thursday.
