Teen stole card and lived large

A TEENAGER who “lived it up” on somebody else’s money found out what goes around comes around when he appeared in Gympie Magistrates Court charged with fraud

Travis Dalton Williams, 19, pleaded guilty to three counts of fraud and was ordered to pay back the money he drained from an acquaintance’s bank account.

The court heard Williams, of Rifle Range Road, Gympie, came into possession of a debit card and its PIN number and went about withdrawing a total of $1350 from three ATM machines over a couple of days from January 3. When the missing money was discovered, CCTV footage from one of the ATMs verified it was Williams who had withdrawn the money.

He was placed on probation for 12 months and given 12 months to pay the money back.
