THIEVES used a blow­torch to break open a park­ing ticket ma­chine and take its EFT­POS card reader on Hack­ett Drive overnight on Fe­bru­ary 1. “The dam­age to the ticket ma­chine is es­ti­mated to be about $20,000,” Sergeant Paul Rat­cliffe said. No cash in the ma­chine was taken but the EFT­POS reader could be used to scan stolen credit and cash cards. CCTV footage from the nearby Uni­ver­sity of WA has yet to pro­vide any footage of the theft but po­lice sus­pect a ute or sim­i­lar ve­hi­cle was used to trans­port the blow­torch and its equip­ment.
