The Suffolk County Police Department is attempting to identify a man who allegedly stole $2,500 in merchandise from Target in Central Islip.

On Tuesday, at about 2 p.m., a man entered the store and filled a cart with Crest Whitening Strips, Crest Toothpaste, Allegra D and Rogaine. He exited without paying and put them in a car driven by another person who was waiting outside the store, police said.

The car was a white four-door sedan, possibly a Toyota with dark tinted windows and a spoiler on the trunk. Suffolk cops say similar thefts and attempted thefts have occurred recently involving the suspect and vehicle.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers at 800-220-TIPS. Callers do not may remain anonymous.
