POLICE are looking for a man who tried to use a credit card stolen from a wallet lost at a Midland liquor store last month.

The wallet was dropped by a customer who made a purchase at the store about 4.50pm on Saturday, May 20.

A woman picked it up off the ground within 30 seconds and removed the credit card before handing the wallet to staff.

A man entered a nearby supermarket near Victoria Street soon after and selected about $80 of items before having them scanned at the checkout.

He produced the stolen card to pay but it was declined and the man immediately left the store.

CCTV images of a man police believe can help with the investigation have been released.

He is described as light skinned, thin build, about 20-25 years old and possibly had a tattoo on the right side of his neck.

He was wearing a black baseball cap, black and white long sleeve top, blue denim shorts and a scarf and was carrying a small black bag over his left shoulder, which also held a pair of purple headphones.

Anyone with information can report it online or call 1800 333 000.
