EARLIER: WARRNAMBOOL police have released an image of a man they want to identify after he twice tried to use a stolen bank card at a service station early Wednesday.

Detective Senior Constable Richard Hughes, of the Warrnambool police crime investigation unit, said a wallet was stolen from a vehicle parked in Eddington Street overnight Tuesday.

"The male depicted in one of the stills used a bank card stolen from the vehicle at BP Road Pantry on Raglan Parade unsuccessfully on two occasions at 3.34am and again two minutes later on Wednesday morning," he said.

The detective said that on the same night an offender walked into an unlocked home while the occupants slept, across the road from where the wallet was stolen from the parked car.

An Apple Mac computer was taken from the home as well as a backpack and mail was also taken from a letterbox in Eddington Street.

"Another picture depicts the Apple Mac computer which was removed from the home while the family slept," he said.

Detective Senior Constable Hughes said that on Thursday morning about 2am four young men entered the BP Road Pantry.

"One of the males is the same young man who entered with the stolen ATM card the night before," he said.

"A short time later in the adjacent street a silver Honda sedan was stolen from the driveway of a house in Canterbury Road.  Uniform police officers on patrol in Dales Road saw the stolen car and tried to intercept the vehicle.

"The driver stuck his middle finger up at the police officers and drove off in a dangerous manner.  The stolen car is still missing.”

Anyone who knows the young men in the pictures or who has information about the offending is requested to contact the Warrnambool police station or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
