The police department posted on its Facebook page Thursday with surveillance photos of the younger man who used the credit card to purchase cigarettes. He was seen at the Walgreens near Far Hills Avenue and West David Road.

It was March 11 when the older man reported he lost his wallet while shopping. Around 6:30 p.m. the same day, the man police believe is in his 20s was seen purchasing cigarettes with the credit card.

Police officials urged anyone with information about the crime to call Kettering Police Department at 937-295-2555.
