    Deputies asked the public Tuesday to help find a man who spent more than $500 on a credit card stolen from a gym locker in Santee.

    The suspect is accused of burglary and credit card fraud, according to Crime Stoppers.

    On May 6, the suspect bought several items worth more than $500 at a CVS store just after midnight. It happened at Mission George Road in Santee.

    The credit card was allegedly stolen from a wallet inside a secured locker at the 24 Hour Fitness near the pharmacy, said Crime Stopper officials.

    About a month later, the suspect stole another victim's wallet from a secured locker at the same gym. Deputies said it happened between 11:10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on June 10.

    After stealing the second wallet, the suspect bought a $500 gift card from the Walgreen's located on Mission Gorge Road. He then tried to use the same credit card at a nearby CVS store, but it was already deactivated.

    Deputies from the Santee Sheriff's Station described the suspect as a man between age 30 and 40, with a medium build and dark hair. He was wearing shorts, a t-shirt and tennis shoes or sandals. He was seen driving a dark-colored sedan.

    A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest. Call the Santee Sheriff's Station at (619)956-4000 or the Crime Stoppers' anonymous tip line at (888)580-8477.
