GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) -

The Goose Creek Police Department is asking for the public's help in identifying a man who they say used a stolen bank card to purchase over $450 in items from three convenience stores.

Police say the first incident occurred on November 6 at 10:09 p.m. at a Sunoco convenience store on N. Goose Creek Blvd. The card was then used less than five minutes later at the Sunoco on St. James.

Officers say the card was also used at a Sunoco in Moncks Corner.

According to an incident report, the first transaction was for $256.44 and the second was for $199.76. Among the items purchased were 12 cartons of Newport cigarettes.

The report states the card owner, who lives in McDonough, Georgia, noticed several transactions from Goose Creek and Moncks Corner on her bank statement that she said she did not make. The victim says she has never been to either city.

Officers say the suspect was spotted on surveillance cameras making the fraudulent purchases. The suspect is wanted for financial transaction card fraud.

If you have any information regarding this incident, call the Goose Creek Police Department at 843-863-5200 ext. 2337.
