Wanted: Wallet Thief Who Used Stolen Credit Card At Sheepshead Theater



Police are turning to the public in their search for a suspect who snagged a victim’s wallet on an F train at Kings Highway.

It appears police had little to go on after the robbery, which took place at 5:00 a.m. on May 18. But a lead popped up more recently when the victim’s credit card was used at Sheepshead Bay’s United Artists movie theater at 3907 Shore Parkway.

Movie theater management turned over surveillance video from the theater’s lobby, where the suspected thief used the credit card at a ticket machine.

The suspect is wanted for grand larceny. No description was given with the photograph.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) and then entering TIP577.

    Why was the card still active? That’s what I want to know

    • Alex

      It doesn’t have to be alive.
      The account was linked to the victim’s name. It stays in the system

    Why is almost every surveillance video camera blurry, they never give a clear shot.
