Thieves go shopping using stolen cards

THE downside of paywave on bank cards has been highlighted after two stolen cards were used to make purchases in Gladstone.

An offender stole a credit card from a vehicle at Gladstone Central Shopping Centre last week and used it to shop at the Park Street Newsagency, Nightowl convenience shop, Coffee Club and United Service Station.

Transactions totalled $84.99, $2.70, $8.80 and $3.50.

In a separate incident, a debit card was stolen from the cup holder of a vehicle in Barambah Pde, Boyne Island.

The card was later used at Boyne Island McDonalds, with the transaction totalling $35.35.

Gladstone police have urged residents to make sure their property is secure at all times.
