TEXARKANA, TX (KSLA) - Texarkana, Texas police are hoping the public can help identify a man who they say tried to use a stolen credit card.

Police say on March 31 around 6 a.m., the man tried to use a credit card that had been stole in a burglary in another city. Fortunately, the card had already been canceled by the owner so it was declined when the man tried to buy $563 worth of merchandise - including a game console.

The good news, the suspected thief left the store disappointed and empty handed.

However, police say they believe the man was involved in the burglary.

Anyone with information on the man's identity is urged to call Texarkana police at 903-798-3116 or Crime Stoppers at 903-793-STOP.
