Between 4.00pm and 6.00pm on Wednesday 21 April 2021, numerous purchases were made using a stolen bank card from stores on Spencer Road in Thornlie. CCTV captured a woman using the stolen bank card during one of these purchases.

The bank card was inside a handbag snatched from the passenger seat of a vehicle less than an hour earlier in a shopping centre carpark. A female shopper had just got into her parked vehicle when a man opened the front passenger door of her vehicle and snatched the victim’s handbag off the front seat before jumping into a vehicle nearby and driving away.
