Man tries to use credit card stolen from home

HAVERHILL — Police want to identify a man who tried to use a stolen credit card at the Methuen Wal-Mart.

The transaction was rejected, investigators said.

Police said the credit card the man tried to use at the Wal-Mart on Pleasant Valley Street near the Loop was among several stolen from a home in the Kenoza Street area of Haverhill.

The theft happened April 8, police said.

Police Detective Lt. Robert Pistone said the man may not be the suspect in the house break, but that he did use a stolen card.

Police released a store surveillance image of the man, as well as an image of what police believe is a black Honda Civic which he was driving.

Pistone said the man in the surveillance photo was unsuccessful in his attempt to use the credit card because the store rejected the card.

“Most likely the victim had already cancelled their credit cards,” Pistone said.

Anyone with information about the identity of the man in the surveillance photo is asked to contact Detective Joseph Benedetti at 978-373-1212.

You can also leave a message on the police anonymous tip line by dialing 978-373-1212 and following the prompts.
