Senior Sergeant Glenn Dowding said there had been an increase in use of pay pass and credit card theft.

“We are urging people to secure their cards and not keep their cards in their phone cases, because these will often get stolen,” he said.

“Phones are easier to misplace and many people keep their card in their phone cases for convenience.”
