Police are investigating after a thief targeted an elderly woman in Kingaroy last week.

The 80-year-old woman, who lives in Doonkuna Street, received a phone call that told her the “chip” in her bank card needed to be replaced.

Officer-in-charge of Kingaroy Police, Senior Sergeant Dave Tierney, said that a short time later a man – aged 25-30 – arrived at the woman’s house and took the card, saying he would return it the next day.

The thief subsequently tried to use the card in Brisbane the following day to buy jewellery but the transaction was declined.

Investigations are continuing.
