Suffolk County police on Friday released a photo of a grand larceny suspect who used a stolen credit card at two convenience stores this summer, and they have asked for the public's help identifying and finding the person in the surveillance camera image.

The first larceny took place at 2:35 a.m. Aug. 9 at a 7-Eleven at 500 Islip Ave., in Islip Terrace, where the suspect used a card that had been stolen in a burglary earlier the same morning, police said. The suspect left the store with $223 in merchandise and cash, police said.
