Fairview Township Police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man they suspect has been involved in a string of thefts from cars.

On Dec. 30, police say, a resident in the Fairview Park development had his debit card taken from his car at night. Not long after the theft, the resident's card was seen being used by a man at a Rutter's Farm Store in West Manchester Township as well as the Royal Farms store in York City.

The suspect, who was pictured in a photo from the department, is a lighter-skinned man wearing a darker-colored shirt, hat and jeans.

Last week, Fairview Township Police reported they had received more than two dozen reports of thefts in a two-week period.

Police say the reports were received on Woodburne Road, the Fairview Park development and on Old Quaker Road. All reports involved cars that were unlocked at the time of the thefts, according to police.

People have lost everything from a few dollars to more than $1,000 in personal property.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 717-901-5267.
