A Busby woman, 53, is due in court next month after several fraudulent transactions were allegedly committed after a theft from a car parked at Glenfield last week.

Between 6pm last Wednesday, October 9 and 10am next morning, a woman, 34, had her wallet and other items stolen from her car parked and secured at a unit block on Old Glenfield Road at Glenfield.

On the Thursday, the woman's credit card was used to make seven unauthorised transactions at several stores in a Miller shopping centre.

Liverpool police officers were notified and began investigations.

Following inquiries, officers searched a unit on South Liverpool Road at Busby about 7am today, Wednesday, October 16.

A woman, 53, was arrested and taken to Liverpool police station where she was charged with dishonestly obtaining property by deception (x 7).

She was granted conditional bail to be in Liverpool court on November 6.

Liverpool police commander, Acting Superintendent Paul Martin, reminds people not to leave valuables in their cars, even when locked. "The Liverpool proactive crime team has done an excellent job investigating this crime, swiftly arresting a woman and putting her before the court," he said.
