Plainfield police are looking for a suspect who stole a car when the driver ran into the store at a local gas station.
Police said that around 10:30 p.m. on March 21 the victim pulled into the Sunoco Gas Station at 704 Norwich Road and left her keys in the car while she went into the store. The suspect also entered the store and after making a purchase, left the store and took off in the victim’s vehicle.
