13-121 Illegal Interference & Theft & Deception – BP Athelstone

Police need help to identify a male who stole a credit card then used the card to obtain various items at the BP Service Station at Athelstone.

At about 1.30 am on Monday, 28th October, 2013, the victim parked their car in front of their house at Prosperity Way, Athelstone.  Between 1.30 am and 5.30 am the rear passenger side window was smashed and entry gained to the vehicle.  Stolen from the vehicle was a Mark Jacobs wallet, Ipod cord and money.  The wallet contained a drivers licence, identification cards and a bankcard.

At about 5.30 am on the same day the stolen bankcard was used at the BP On The Run, at 310 Gorge Road, Athelstone, a short distance from the victim’s house.  A male used the bankcard, on four separate occasions, each time buying various items using the pay wave system and then leaving the store after each purchase.  On the fifth occasion the BP staff member became suspicious and checked the card that the male was using.  The staff member saw that it belonged to a female and they then believed that the bankcard was stolen and not the males bankcard at all.  The staff member retained the bankcard and the male left the store.

The male is described as:  30 years, 180 cm (5’11"), 90 kgs, slim build, with dark hair and has a five o’clock shadow, wearing a blue and white baseball cap, large blue parachute jacket with a large white insignia or pattern down the length of the arm and a small white insignia on the right upper chest area and trackpants.
