Whitewater police are asking the public to help identify a suspect who they believe stole three credit card and bought $1,600 worth of items at Wal-Mart.
A suspect on May 24 entered the Whitewater Aquatic Center men’s locker room, took a set of keys, went into the parking lot and took three credit cards from a wallet in the vehicle, according to a crime alert.
A witness said the suspect looked like a man in his 30s, but he possibly wore a gray fedora hat and baggy clothing—a red shirt and khaki pants—to appear elderly, the alert states.
The suspect took the credit cards to the Whitewater Wal-Mart and bought an $800 computer, $300 router, $250 gift card, protein powder and gas cans, according to the alert. The suspect kept his head down and bought a storage tote to hide his face from cameras.
The suspect filled the gas cans at a gas station across the street and drove away in a red or maroon minivan, according to the alert.
The locations in this incident had low-quality surveillance images of the suspect, the alert states. Those with information should call Whitewater police officer Ryan Weston at 262-473-0555, option 4, or email rweston@ whitewater-wi.gov.
