(ABC 6 News) -- The Olmsted County Sheriff's Office has identified the suspect who they believe took off with a vehicle at Stewartville gas station earlier this month.

Police believe 21-year-old Abdi Mohamud Ahmed stole a vehicle from the Kwik Trip on North Main Street on August 7. The owner had left the car running in the parking lot.

Authorities later tracked the car to a location near the Eastwood Golf Course in Rochester.

Ahmed faces several charges, including fleeing an officer, motor vehicle theft and reckless driving. 

Police are still looking for Ahmed and say he's not a threat to the public.
