Hawaii island police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man wanted for using a stolen credit card to buy two flat-screen television sets at a Kona store.

The man used the stolen card on June 26 and was seen driving away in what appeared to be a red four-door sport utility vehicle. His photo, captured on a surveillance camera, is posted on the Police Department’s website at www.hawaiipolice.com.

Police ask anyone who recognizes the man in the photo to call Lt. Gerald Wike at 326-4646, extension 266, or the Police Department’s nonemergency line at 935-3311. Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous may call CrimeStoppers at 961-8300 in Hilo or 329-8181 in Kona.
