Report by Paula Antolini, September 3, 2019, 9:35PM EDT

Newtown Police:

On 8/27/2019 between 8:00am and 9:30am in the parking lot of Commerce Rd, an unlocked vehicle was entered into and cash and a credit card were stolen. 

The suspect later made a credit card purchase at Walmart in Shelton, CT and unsuccessfully attempted to make a credit card purchase at Best Buy in Trumbull.

Video surveillance shows the suspect to be a white male that was wearing a dark colored hoodie with cargo shorts, white socks and black shoes.

It is a possibility that the suspect fled Best Buy in a small red vehicle. 

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Newtown Police Department and refer to case number 2019-21861.
