Police hope CCTV images of a man may be able to assist with their enquiries after bank cards were stolen from the cars and used in Narre Warren.
Police believe an unknown person broke into multiple cars in Hanleath Avenue in Springvale on 1 September.
The cards were also used on the same day at service stations at service stations in Narre Warren, Clayton South, Keysborough, Dandenong, Doveton, and a shopping complex in Narre Warren.
He is perceived to be Caucasian in appearance, about 25 to 35-year-old, with a medium build, brown hair, and a number of distinctive tattoos to his right elbow, right and left forearm, and right and left hand side of his neck.
The man was also pictured with another unknown man travelling in a silver Holden Commodore sedan displaying false plates, police say.
Anyone with information or who may recognise the man is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
