Deputies say a thief broke into a car at a trailhead, stole a purse and used one of the credit cards to buy a TV.

The thief was caught on camera leaving a Target store with the TV in his shopping cart, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.

The car was broken into at the Van Bibber Open Space Park in Arvada last Tuesday. The credit card was used at the Target at Colorado Mills, just seven miles away.

The Sheriff's Office said the suspect is a white man, about 6-foot-2 inches tall with a medium build.
Deputies said he was using an older-model, full-size, white Ford pickup with an extended cab, a white topper, and a blue strip along the side.

If you recognize him, call the Sheriff’s Office tip line at 303-271-5612 or call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867).
