According to a news release issued Tuesday, surveillance cameras at the Roswell Home Depot on North Main Street captured an image of a man leaving a local store after spending more than $4,800 on a credit card account he allegedly opened fraudulently in the name of another person.

Roswell Police investigators are hoping someone will recognize the man or the white compact car he was driving.

The man is suspected of spending the money Nov. 21 at Home Depot, on a credit account opened using the name and personal information of a man in Georgia. The Georgia man reportedly became aware of the situation after the purchases were made and he received information from the store regarding the new credit account.

The news release indicated that, in addition to fraud, the suspect could possibly be charged with identity theft.
