Lincoln Police are looking for someone who stole a wallet and used the victim's credit card all over the city.
There are only a few images Lincoln Police have of a criminal going store to store with a stolen credit card. It started back on August 3rd.
"He indicated that he rode with a friend to a house party somewhere on Surfside Drive," said LPD Officer Shane Winterbauer. "When he returned back to his friend's vehicle, he learned that his wallet was stolen."
Over the next couple days, the criminal used the credit card at stores around the city. The victim didn't learn of the fraud until 4 days later.
"On August 8th, the victim's bank notified him of several unauthorized or suspicious transactions on his credit card," said Winterbauer.
It wasn't until he went to Walgreens that he was finally caught on camera.
"The suspect is described as being a white male, approximately 6', mid 20's, he was wearing a ball cap, a shirt and tan pants," said Winterbauer.
Police aren't sure why the victim didn't report the theft when he learned of it the next day, but it could've prevented more than $1,000 in charges.
Lincoln Police are hoping this crime will finally put an end to car larcenies.
Winterbauer says, "Make sure that your vehicle doors are locked, try not to leave your personal or valuables inside a vehicle no matter if it's locked or not, thirdly, if you do realize that your wallet is lost or missing, contact your bank right away."
A simple action that could've stopped the criminal in his tracks.
