Police appeal after theft and use of bank card

They believe they might be able to help an investigation into the theft and use of a bank card. 

The incident happened on August 21 shortly before midday in the Staple Hill/Kingswood area. 

The victim was queuing to pay and noticed a man standing closely behind her when she paid her bill and obtained money via cashback. 

She later noticed when she went to use her card again that it was missing. 

A subsequent check of her bank account later showed that the lost card had been used at several locations in South Gloucestershire.

Police would like the three people – or anyone recognising them – to contact them, quoting reference 5219194226.

They are advising the public to ensure when using a key pad to input their card number that they obscure the view of anyone that may be standing behind.
