POLICE have issued a warning to shoppers to take care of their debit and credit card while out shopping following three incidents of shopper’s cards being stolen and money being withdrawn from accounts without consent.

The first incident happened when an 82-year-old woman had been shopping in Morrisons in Letchworth GC and Asda in Biggleswade on August 2.

When she arrived home she realised her bank card was missing from her purse and later she noticed someone had withdrawn cash from her account.

Investigating officer, Gary Maxey, from Bedfordshire Police, is keen to remind members of the public to take extra care of their bank and credit cards when they are out.

The other crimes happened at a Sainsbury’s store in Luton, the third incident happened at Aldi in Biggleswade.
