SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

Multiple larcenies at local convenience stores have spurred police to ask for the public's help in identifying the suspects.

On May 15 about 7 p.m. a man entered the School of Fish store at 1865 Page Blvd. and grabbed two protein skimmers worth $530 and ran out the door, according to a news release from Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney.

The owner chased the thief down as he was about to get into a getaway car, and forced the man to drop the merchandise. The owner saw the car had Massachusetts plate: 5CD V30. An image of the suspect is attached.

An unrelated larceny occurred Saturday about 8 p.m. at Banas Package Store at 42 Park Street. A black male weighing about 250 pounds grabbed two bottles of Grey Goose Vodka worth $88 and stormed out the door, Delaney said.

Images of the suspect are attached.

"If you steal or attempt to steal anything, you are always on video and will get caught," Delaney said.

If you have any information regarding the suspect's identity, contact the Springfield Police Department Detective Bureau at 413-787-6355.

If you want to remain anonymous you can simply send the suspect's name to "Text-a-Tip."
