A man lost his wallet containing his driver’s licence, credit card and Medicare card in Perth on Friday 28 February 2020.
The man found out later that those lost documents were used to obtain a line of credit in his name. On Wednesday 4 March 2020, a man and woman attended a mobile phone store in Booragoon and bought seven iPhone 11 Pro’s to the value of almost $14,000 using that line of credit.
Police have released a CCTV image of a man and woman who they believe may be able to assist them with their investigation.
The man is described as: Light skinned, around 25 years of age, thin build and facial hair. He was wearing a fluorescent yellow top, dark long pants and a dark baseball cap.
The woman is described as: Light skinned, around 25 years of age, thin build and blonde hair tied back. She was wearing a blue dress and carrying a large dark coloured shoulder bag.
Upon leaving the store with the phones, the man and woman were seen to meet up with another man and they all left the area.
