Urban security police have identified a man for a series of bank card thefts and their use. He notably stripped revelers at the end of the night.
In the space of eleven months, he allegedly cheated on eleven bank card owners. Means of payment often stolen at the end of the night in the Toulouse city center on the outskirts or in bars and nightclubs but also in the metro. Only this week, the police from the General Investigations Unit of the Right Bank came to present the bill to him. And to place him in police custody, they did not have to look for him too much since this 36-year-old individual already feels in “pension” at the Seysses remand center.
By working on the operating mode, the investigators identified a dozen complaints. Each time, the victim no longer went to his bank card and quickly noticed withdrawals made in the hours following the theft. A classic among these specialized thieves who scour the Toulouse nights, taking advantage of the fatigue and intoxication of their future victims to locate the secret codes of the cards before stealing them and withdrawing as much money as possible from the ATM. In addition to nightclubs, the suspect also allegedly stole bank cards in the metro. According to the investigations of the security police, this individual would have managed to embezzle € 10,000 in the space of eleven months, between March 2019 and February 2020. At least the thefts that were reported to him. During his custody this week, this individual accustomed to the investigation services did not seek to discuss the offenses. He recognized the eleven thefts identified by investigators and the various withdrawals. While awaiting the prosecution decision of the public prosecutor’s office and its probable explanations before the courts, he was accompanied to the Seysses remand center where he found his cell.
