Woman shops with stolen card

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - NEWS -

A MARY­BOR­OUGH woman, who stole a credit card from a mail­box and went on a shop­ping spree with it, has been fined.

Me­lanie Gaye McKech­nie, 39, spent $610.05 with the stranger’s card buy­ing re­tail goods in­clud­ing cig­a­rettes and al­co­hol.

Mary­bor­ough Mag­is­trates Court heard last week that she made sure each pur­chase was un­der $100 so she could use Pay­pass. She was fined $750 and or­dered to pay back the money she spent.
