Carroll credit card thief sought by police

The Carroll County Sheriff's Office is seeking information regarding the theft of a wallet and credit cards that occurred on or about June 6 at Carroll Community College.

The Sheriff's Office released images of a suspect Tuesday in a press release.

According to the release, shortly after the wallet and credit cards were stolen from the campus, the suspect began charging for merchandise at four locations in Westminster, including Wal-Mart, Rite Aid, Office Deport and Food Lion.

The photos released by the Sheriff's Office were taken from campus security. Further photos may come available as videos from the aforementioned stores are received and analyzed.

The suspect is described as a black male in his 50s, wearing a suit and brimmed hat, according to police.

Anyone with information on the suspect or similar cases is asked to contact Deputy Hemler at 410-386-2900.
