A theft suspect at the Walmart on Highway 69 in Prescott in early February, 2019. Authorities are seeking information on the identity of this individual.

The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office (YCSO) is seeking information on the identity of a theft suspect.

In early February, YCSO deputies met with a Prescott county resident about the illegal use of her credit card, according to a YCSO news release. She had been contacted by her bank earlier that day about unusual charges on the account, but she said the card was never received and that it may have been stolen from her mail box.

Statement information showed that the stolen card had been used at the Maverik gas station in Dewey and the Walmart on Highway 69 in Prescott on the day of her report.

Deputies contacted personnel at both locations and eventually obtained security video stills of the male suspect and his vehicle, a blue van, according to the news release. In the case of the Walmart purchase, the stolen card was declined at the register and the suspect left in a pick-up truck.

Anyone with information on the identity of the suspect or suspect vehicles in this case are encouraged to call the YCSO at 928-771-3260. Callers may also share a tip anonymously to Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232 by referring to case 19-004439. If the tip results in an arrest, a cash reward will be offered.
