Alexandria Police have released photos of a white van with one or more people inside in Prince George's County while someone was trying to use the credit card of Lenwood "Lenny" Harris last week, shortly after the community activist went missing.

Police are asking for the public's help in identifying the vehicle and the person seen in the van on surveillance cameras. The vehicle appears to be a white Dodge Caravan with no front tag and more than one person inside.

Police are also continuing to ask for help in identifying a man who used Harris' credit card on King Street shortly after 1:00 A.M. the same morning as the attempt in Maryland.

The person of interest appears to be a black male wearing a t-shirt and baseball hat. He has a moustache and a small goatee. He has a muscular build and tattoos on his right and left forearm.

The tattoo on the inside of his forearm appears to have numbers with a word written below.

Police would also like to talk with anyone who spoke with Lenny Harris on Tuesday, September 21.

A "Lenny Harris Reward Fund" has been established by private donors at Virginia Commerce Bank. Anyone wishing to contribute to the fund can go to any bank branch and make a donation. St. Elmo's Coffee Shop, located at 2300 Mount Vernon Avenue is also accepting donations for the fund.

From Alexandria Police: The police department is asking for anyone recognizing the vehicle or the person of interest in the surveillance photos to please call the Criminal Investigations Section of the Alexandria Police Department at 703.746.4711 or the non-emergency number at 703.838.4444.
