Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man wanted in connection with two gas-and-dashes in the Halifax area this week.

Nova Scotia RCMP say on Tuesday at 11:55 a.m., a man refuelled his vehicle at a service station along St. Margaret’s Bay Road in Timberlea.

Police say the licence plate was covered with what appears to be paper, secured with tape. He drove off without paying for the gas.
