GARDAI have made a television appeal for help in identifying a man who is suspected of using a stolen bank card at several stores in the city centre.

Footage of the man allegedly using the card at a number of different stores was broadcast on Monday night’s Crimecall programme on RTÉ television.

“This took place last December, he (the suspect) uses a card which doesn’t belong to him and he doesn’t have permission to use it,” said Garda Greg Freegrove.

In the CCTV footage from four different stores, the suspect can be seen wearing glasses and a beanie hat as he carries out transactions in each premises.

He is wearing runners and dark clothing and appears to be carrying a rucksack on his back.

“If you can help gardai identify him, we would like to hear from you,” said Garda Freegrove.

It has not been disclosed when the bank card was stolen or what goods were fraudulantly purchased.

Gardai at Henry Street can be contacted at (061) 212400 or Crimecall can be contacted at 1800 405060.
