The suspect’s image was captured by an on-site security camera.

The credit card was either lost or stolen on July 14, and the man pictured has used the card to purchase merchandise at several stores, St. George Police Detective Josh Wilson said.

    Don’t know more details, but I’m surprised he was able to use the card as long as he seems to have done. Once, I used my card to make a large purchase at a ‘big box’ store and then made two other purchases within an hour. The credit card company was on the phone with me the next day. (good for them) Another time, I had a ‘fistfight’ (not really) with a gas station pump that resulted in three transactions within one minute. My card was locked out until I made a phone call.
