Haverhill Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying a man believed to have made at least 18 debit card purchases on a stolen card over a two-day period.

Police secured a surveillance video recording from one local store, showing the Caucasian suspect in a dark tank top shirt with what appears to be earphones around his neck.

The unidentified victim may have forgotten the card at a store since the suspect appears to be using the actual debit card, police said. The card has since been deactivated.

Those with information may call the Haverhill Police anonymous tip line at 978-373-1212, prompt 1, or Detective Dan Trocki at 978-373-1212, ext. 1548, or use the online form at http://www.haverhillma.gov/departments/police_department/HPD-Tips.php.
