Why do people steal? I suppose there are different reasons for different individuals but it's against the law regardless of the reasons. Some people even steal by mistake. When my son was a baby I pushed my cart out of the grocery store forgetting the diapers underneath. For that 3 minutes before going back and paying I could have been accused of stealing.

We have a case here in New York where an individual allegedly took credit cards that are not his and used them to purchase nearly $2,000 worth of merchandise. Tough to say this was a mistake. Can you help New York State Police identify this suspect?
