That's where the suspect stole a backpack from a locked locker inside the gym. He then used a key inside the backpack to unlock the victim's car in the parking lot. The suspect proceeded to steal a wallet from inside the car.

The suspect then used several of the victim's credit cards to make more than $1,000 in purchases from several businesses in the La Jolla and Midway areas of the City of San Diego.
