The IVPressOnline.com has reported that the El Centro Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who is wanted on theft charges.
The incident in question happened in late August, police say, after a pair of women contacted law enforcement officials to report their wallets, credit cards and other valuable items had been stolen.
As luck would have it, the suspect in that crime was caught on camera several hours later. Investigators say they have obtained video surveillance footage of that man, who appears to be a male in his 20s or 30s, using one of the stolen credit cards at a big-box retailer. The not-yet-identified suspect has dark hair and a mustache. He was last seen wearing a gray shirt and black pants.
Anyone who believes they have information that could lead to his capture is asked to contact the El Centro Police. Once the suspect is taken into custody he’ll be booked at the Imperial County Jail on theft charges. It’s unclear whether prosecutors will also pursue identity theft charges.
