Authorities are trying to identify a man who they say recently purchased almost $10,000 worth of jewelry at a Central New York mall with a stolen credit card.

New York State Police have released a photo taken from security cameras inside the Kay Jewelers at Destiny USA in Syracuse. They say the man in the photo purchased approximately $9,000 worth of jewelry in April of this year with that stolen card.

Based on the value of the items purchased, Troopers are calling it a grand larceny investigation. Making identification of the suspect a bit more difficult is the fact that he is wearing a surgical style mask to cover his face. Anyone who recognizes the individual is asked to contact New York State Police at 315-366-6000.
