POLICE are hunting this man in connection with a theft from a car in St Helens.

At about 11.30am on Sunday, May 26, a woman parked her black Vauxhall Corsa on the car park outside Ruskin Drive Sports Centre.

When she returned, she found that her vehicle had been broken into and her handbag snatched.

An attempt was made to use one of cards stolen from her bag at a card machine at the Tesco in Windle Island later that day.

DI Andy Milligan said: “Crimes of this nature are often opportunistic. Thieves will look for signs that a vehicle contains items that are worth stealing.”

If you recognise the man pictured, call police on 0151 777 6843 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
