Police are asking anyone with information about a larceny from a motor vehicle that took place on Wednesday to contact them.
Officers responded to a Santa Fe Avenue home on the report of a larceny from a car, according to Hamden Police spokesman Capt. Ronald Smith.
A handbag was taken from the vehicle, Smith said, and in the bag was a wallet that contained several credit cards. The cards were then used during the early morning hours Wednesday at a Sunoco gas station on Frontage Road in East Haven, Smith said.
Police released a surveillance photograph taken at the gas station showing the suspect who is described as a white male with a beard and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with the letters C.O.D. imprinted on it, Smith said. He was driving a black Infiniti FX35 SUV with either a Virginia or Massachusetts license plate, Smith said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Officer Joseph Liguori at 203-230-4030.
