In early January 2015, the suspect in the attached surveillance photographs used several victims' debit card information to fraudulently withdraw money from ATM machines in the cities of Thousand Oaks and Los Angeles. The suspect is described as a white male between 60-75 years old and has darker, graying hair.  He appears to be unshaven with a thin gray beard and mustache.  All the victims still had their ATM cards in their possession at the time of the crimes, and how the suspect obtained the victims' information is still under investigation.


The Thousand Oaks Police Department is asking for the public's help in identifying the suspect in the photographs.  Anybody with information regarding the suspect in the photos is encouraged to contact Detective Chris Jones at 805-371-8396.


The Thousand Oaks Police Department would like to remind its residents to frequently check their credit reports and monitor their savings/checking accounts for unauthorized activity.  If any suspicious activity is noted, immediately call your financial institution and report it to the Thousand Oaks Police Department at 805-654-9511.
