FAIRFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) — Fairfield Police are looking for a suspect they believe used an alias name to obtain a gym pass and then stole a machine from the club Tuesday night.

The owner of Anytime Fitness contacted police and gave them a photo of a man they say stole a water ionization machine worth $5,000. The photo of the suspect, provided by the gym located on 1838 Black Rock Turnpike, was used as a seven day gym pass. Police say the theft was reported last night at 11:30 p.m. The fitness center is not always monitored but available 24-hours a day.

The man used the name Tyler Rodgers, but police are saying that it is likely fake. He left the business on foot following the theft, so he may be local to the area.

If anyone recognizes the man in the photo, Fairfield police ask that they be contacted.
