This week for Monday's Most Wanted, 5 News aired some old cases police are still trying to solve.

Bridgeport Police still need you to play detective to identify a man who apparently had his own Cinco de Mayo celebration on another person's dime.

They said the man walked into the Exxon on Barnett Run around 9:30 a.m., May 5. When he got to the register, he sent the clerk to the other side of the counter multiple times for items. When she walked away, police said he swiped a credit card on the cash register. He paid for cash for his stuff at the Exxon but then headed up the road to Dick's Sporting Good. That's where he used the stolen credit card to buy $330 worth of items including a fish finder, an airsoft rifle and fishing reels.

If you know who he is, call Detective B.E. Kemmerer at 304-848-6122.

State Police out of Lewis County are looking for Eric L. Carpenter.

Carpenter has two outstanding felony warrants, one for uttering and the other for conspiracy to commit a felony.  He also has a warrant for uttering in Braxton County. Troopers said Carpenter and Kayla Hamner stole checks from Hamner's grandfather and forged them to use in Lewis and Braxton counties. Hamner was arrested in Braxton County in November. Police said Carpenter's last known location was in Braxton County.

If you can help them pinpoint him, call state police at 304-269-0500.
