State police are looking for a man who allegedly took a wallet and flintlock muzzleloader rifle from a vehicle in Hunker on Dec. 30.

Investigators on Friday released surveillance photos of the suspect, who police said used credit cards in the wallet to make $540 worth of purchases at GetGo and Walmart stores in East Huntingdon and a Sheetz in Scottdale.

The suspect is described as a thin, white man in his 20s with dark hair. He was wearing a green knit hat, black jacket, black-and-gray hooded sweatshirt, denim jeans and work boots in the surveillance images.

The man's sport utility vehicle is described as dark colored with a burned-out driver's side light and possibly a roof rack.

Anyone with information is asked to call state police at 724-832-3288.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
