Police investigate stolen credit card use

Monash Crime Investigation Unit detectives are hoping to identify a man in relation to an investigation into a theft from motor vehicle in Chadstone last month.

Investigators have been told a vehicle which was parked on Margot street was broken into sometime on the morning of 22 July.

The front driver side window was smashed and once inside, the vehicle was searched and a wallet containing the victim’s bank cards was stolen.

Two purchases were made at nearby service stations in Dandenong Road, Oakleigh at 5.36am and then in nearby Ferntree Gully Road, Mount Waverley at 5.56am.

Investigators have released CCTV of a man who they believe will be able to assist with their enquiries.

He is described as Caucasian in appearance, approximately 180cm tall with a stocky build.

The man was wearing a Carlton baseball cap, a two-tone high vis shirt and jacket, gloves, beige pants and work boots at the time.

Anyone who recognises the man is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
