North Myrtle Beach police are asking for the public’s help locating and identifying a man they believe used stolen credits cards to rack up more than $1,000 in fraudulent charges.

According to the incident report, a woman notified police on Aug. 28 that her wallet had been stolen after receiving text verifications from her bank about purchases made at the CVS and Walgreens in North Myrtle Beach. She said a black male came to her job in the Carolina Forest area, provided false information, asked to use the bathroom and stole her wallet from her office, the report states.

The unidentified man, who was caught on surveillance photos, is sporting blue jeans and a white shirt.
