A pair armed with a stolen credit card went on a mini crime wave around Dunedin, illegally purchasing thousands of dollars worth of goods.

The credit card was stolen along with a purse and laptop from a Dunedin social agency.

The two alleged offenders then went on a “credit card spree” along the city’s main retail area on Thursday morning, Constable Nick Turner said.

The pair bought clothing, jewellery, a phone and a drone.

Pictures of the theft were widely shared on social media.
