I assume that you want to check if one of the items in the string is your given string. I would split the string first by the delimiter ,, then use Contains or Any:

string[] items = "67,782,452,67632,9,155,323".Split(',');

bool contains = items.Contains("155");

contains = items.Any(i => i == "155");

The problem with the Contains-check on the string is that also "1550" would contain "155".
