UCLA police are searching for a man wanted in connection with a theft earlier this month at Powell Library.
Richard James Fluhart allegedly used a stolen credit card on Feb. 5, one day after the library theft, to make purchases at two 7-Elevens and a 76 gas station in West Los Angeles. Among his purchases were Mickey Mouse and Tweety Bird stuffed animals.
Fluhart was seen on Feb. 5 at Franz Hall reportedly checking doorknobs to rooms.
Police described the suspect as a white man, 45 years old, 5 feet 11 inches tall, and weighing 180 pounds. He has dirty blonde hair and blue eyes.
Fluhart was last seen wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, black T-shirt, dark pants and dark shoes.
Anyone who sees Fluhart is asked to call UCPD at 310-825-1491.
This incident is the latest in a string of crimes that have occurred on or near UCLA's campus in recent weeks.
Earlier this month, a man allegedly attempted to sexually batter a victim at home near campus. In late January, police were investigating a robbery that left one man with minor abrasions to his face after being punched several times near the campus. A student was allegedly threatened with a knife in an anti-gay hate crime on Jan. 18. On Jan. 7, a male student was robbed at gunpoint and a female student was the victim of an attempted sexual assault.
