SHELTON, Conn. -- Connecticut State Troopers are investigating the theft of a debit card and cash from a car parked in the Exit 13 commuter lot near Route 8 southbound in Shelton.
Troopers from Troop I-Bethany were called to the commuter lot about 2:45 p.m. Monday to investigate a larceny from a state Department of Transportation vehicle, police said. The complainant said that when he returned to the vehicle, he noticed his wallet had been removed from his lunch cooler.
Troopers later found the wallet discarded on the ground in the commuter lot. A Wells Fargo Visa debit card along with $10 in cash were missing from the wallet. Troopers discovered that the debit card was used at a gas station on Bridgeport Avenue in Shelton, police said.
Troopers obtained surveillance footage of the suspect's vehicle. The suspect was last seen leaving the gas station in an older-model gray or tan Oldsmobile, traveling south on Bridgeport Avenue. The upper half of the vehicle's front passenger side door is painted black, and the vehicle has damage to the front right fender, police said.
Troopers remind citizens to lock vehicle doors and place valuables out of sight and to remain vigilant and contact police of any suspicious activity.
Anyone with any information about the suspect or the suspect's vehicle is asked to contact Trooper Donis at Troop I-Bethany at 203-393-4200 or text “TIP711” with information to 236748.
