Police released surveillance video in hopes of catching a suspect in a string of thefts in gym lockers all over Southern California.

The suspect was responsible for at least eight thefts in Equinox and LA Fitness locker rooms in West LA, Van Nuys, Hollywood and parts of Orange County. LA Police Department detectives say that the suspect used credit cards that he obtained in the thefts.

The suspect is described as a bald black man in his late 30s, between 5'8" and 6-feet tall and between 215 and 230 pounds.

Anyone with information about his identity was asked to call LAPD Detective Tiffany Maston at (310) 444-1565.
