A Hobart woman told police an envelope of cash and two credit cards were stolen from her car parked at Robinson Lake and later used in Griffith, Gary and Hammond.
Hobart police have acquired surveillance images of the alleged suspect from two stores and are asking the public's help in identifying the man.
The woman told police that on the afternoon of Sept. 30 her car alarm went off while she was parked at Robinson Lake, however she saw no one around the vehicle at the time, according to Lt. James Gonzales.
A short time later the woman told police she received a text notification from her credit card company that a purchase was attempted at Best Buy.
When the woman returned to her vehicle she found two credit cards missing as well as a bank envelope that contained cash.
Police said additional charges with the stolen credit cards happened at the BP Amoco station in Griffith, the Pilot Gas Station in Gary and the Walmart in Hammond.
The woman told police she noticed a white pick-up truck occupied by a black man and a heavyset white woman next to her when she initially got out of her vehicle.
Gonzales asked that anyone with information about the suspect can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org and by phone at 219-942-4405.
