HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Try to imagine dropping your credit card in a shopping mall only to find out it's been picked up by a credit card crook and taken for a ride.

And this is a ride you're not going to believe in this week's Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers.

The crook is seen on a surveillance camera inside a Huntsville liquor store Jan. 21, stealing some booze, using a stolen credit card.

But this stop was only the tip of the iceberg.

According to Huntsville Police, the crook went on a shopping spree after picking up a credit card that someone dropped at Madison Square Mall.

Police say that shopping spree spanned more than 18 locations.

That includes a Japanese restaurant, a candle store, an adult novelty store, that liquor store and a jewelry store.

This crook kept the road hot with that hot credit card. Police say he even stole a $1,000 ring from Zales.

We do have some pretty good surveillance pictures from his stop at the liquor store.

He was wearing some unusual blue jeans with a distinctive "x" on his back left pocket. And we also get a pretty good look at his face. Do you know who this quick credit card crook is?

If so, we need you to make the quick and anonymous call to 256-53-Crime.

Or to text or e-mail an anonymous tip, head to our Crime Stoppers page for details.

There's a reward of up to $1,000 waiting for you.
