CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Police are looking for a suspect who stole a credit card, then used the card to buy gas.

The card was stolen Dec. 21 in the 300 block of Milton Street. Police say a bartender stepped outside to take a smoke break and was confronted by a suspect who displayed a small hand gun and took the victim's wallet.

Later, the suspect was observed on video at the Shell gas station at Gilbert and Martin Luther King using one of the victim's credit cards to buy gas. The suspect is seen exiting a white Toyota Camry then pumping gas into a white Chevy Impala. He is seen wearing a black and yellow jacket with what appears to be a cartoon character on the back. He is described as a black male, 5'9" and 160 pounds.

Anyone with information on these suspects or the white impala and Toyota are asked to call Crimestoppers at 513-352-3040 or Det. McNeil at 513-569-8618.
