TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Detectives are asking for the public's help in identifying a man suspected of stealing credit cards and charging thousands of dollars on them.  The warning is be careful this morning, if attending a gym keep an eye on personal belongings. 

A man stole credit cards from a locker inside a LA Fitness gym in Tucson. 

Pima County Sheriff's deputies are looking for a man who went on a shopping spree, with those same stolen credit cards. 

Detectives have released surveillance video of the suspect at several stores, including a local Best Buy, a Chipotle restaurant and a Ben Bridge Jewelry store, charging more than $20,000 in purchases.

Tom Peine with the Pima County Sheriff's Department says there are a lot of unknowns in this case, but they believe he has done it before.  Peine says in the video the suspect is talking with cashiers and seems perfectly at ease. 

The suspect is described as 6 feet tall and weighing around 220 pounds and speaks with a possible Russian accent. 

If anyone recognizes the man in the video, call 911 or 88 CRIME.
