A 41-year-old Lismore man has been charged with five fraud offences after a stolen credit card was used to by luxury goods in Lismore last week.
Last Thursday evening a Queensland man passing through town accidentally left his wallet at a Chinese restaurant, where another customer picked it up.
When the man realised that his wallet had been stolen, he cancelled his credit cards but forgot about one of them.
Police allege the accused used the card on Friday to purchase jewellery valued at $3762.40, $374.50 worth of clothing and a $168 iPod.
Police visited the man and seized the purchased iPod. On being interviewed the man admitted to using the credit card to purchase the goods. He was subsequently charged.
Police have since located all the items bought with the stolen credit card.
