Pay Wave bourbon thief wanted

POLICE are looking for this man in relation to a spate of Duranbah Beach wallet thefts and credit card fraud offences.

Police allege on May 7 this man rode into liquor outlets on a pushbike and bought bourbon using a credit card stolen from a Duranbah beachgoer.

Tweed Byron LAC Sargent Cameron Miller said a Pay Wave credit card, not requiring a pin for purchases under $100, enabled the fraudulent transactions.

"I don't think any law enforcement officer would be in support of Pay Wave. We've gone from signing with a pen to allowing people to throw a hundred dollars on it at a time with no security measures," Sgt Miller said.

The man pictured may be able to assist with police inquiries - if any member of the public can identify him contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Tweed Heads Police Station on 0755 360999.
