MONTGOMERY CO. – Police are searching for a man suspected of charging over $15,000 worth of jewelry to a victim’s stolen credit card.

Police say the victim’s wallet was stolen on August 5 at Lakewood Country Club in Rockville. He was not aware of the theft until his bank notified him of a large credit card purchase at Jared The Galleria of Jewelry Store later that afternoon.

The investigation shows the suspect also tried to purchase over $1,000 worth of items at the Home Depot store in Germantown, but that transaction was declined.

Police released this photo of the suspect Tuesday.
