ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – Kirkwood Police Department is searching for a man who they believe is responsible for stealing a watch, wallet and using the credit cards from the stolen wallet.

The watch and wallet were reportedly stolen from a Kirkwood fitness facility.  The credit cards from the stolen wallet were used within an hour in Crestwood, Missouri.  The man purchased over $4,000 worth of electronics and gift cards.

Authorities say the suspect is a light complected, black male between 35 and 50 years old.  The man is heavy-set and was seen wearing glasses and a flat top hat.

Police say the suspect is a stranger to the gym—not a member, nor an employee. He did not sign in, either.

Detectives say a few other departments are looking into similar cases.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Andy Alderman of the Kirkwood Police Department at 314-822-5882.
