According to Investigator Patrick Reilly of Binghamton’s New York State University Police, a wallet was stolen from the West Gym locker room Wednesday, Jan. 22 at 10:30 a.m. while the victim was in class.

A card from the victim’s wallet was used 20 minutes later at the Hess gas station on Vestal Parkway East. Reilly described the suspect as a “black or Hispanic male, about 5-foot-10 with short hair.”

Reilly said he thinks that the suspect is a student because he walked from campus to the store and then walked across the Sherwin-Williams parking lot afterward.

“I took that as not having a car and time frame from items put into unlocked locker at 10:30 a.m. and [the] card being used at 10:50 a.m.,” Reilly wrote in an email. “[T]hat would be about time for walking distance.”

Anyone with information about the suspect should contact University Police at (607) 777-2275.
