They used a credit card stolen Wednesday from a car in Rockville Centre, police said. And they’re suspects in at least two other similar vehicle break-ins in the area, police said.

Nassau County police have released surveillance images of the man and woman wanted in the larcenies, all which took place on Wednesday, as they ask for the public’s help finding them.

In the surveillance images, the couple are seen entering a CVS store on Sunrise Highway in Baldwin.

There, police said, they used a credit card stolen from a 2017 Hyundai Tucson. That vehicle was parked in a lot on Maple Avenue in Rockville Centre and, police said, the owner, a woman, reported the theft after finding the rear window “shattered.”

A wallet, cash, credit cards and a pocketbook were taken in the theft, according to police.

Police said that at least two other vehicles were reported damaged in the area, also on Wednesday: a 2017 Acura that was in a lot on Hempstead Avenue; and a 2013 Chevrolet Equinox, parked on Ohio Street. Nothing was taken from the Acura, police said. A handbag containing a watch and a gift certificate was taken from the Equinox. Police said both vehicles had shattered windows.

Police also said that a four-door blue or gray Nissan was seen in each of the locations.

Police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 800-244-8477. All calls will remain confidential.
