Police would like to hear from any members of the public who may be able to assist them in locating a stolen vehicle and to help identify a man and woman they believe may be of assistance with investigations into multiple offences committed around Toowoomba since Friday.
The duo had a busy weekend, which all started on Friday the 16th when a white 4×4 utility failed to stop for police near the intersection of North Street and Davidson Street, North Toowoomba.
The vehicle was described as having lifted suspension, loud exhaust, flat steel tray with no sides and with a black strip of trim across the bottom of each door.
They continued their spree around 6:13am on February 17, when the same vehicle, bearing Queensland registration 924TFU, went to a business on Boundary Street, Wilsonton, where a quantity of diesel was stolen from a worksite bowser. The registration plates 924TFU are believed to be fake copies of originals.
A day later 1:24am on Sunday February 18, the same vehicle but bearing trailer plate EN3615 visited the same business in Boundary Street, Wilsonton where diesel was again stolen.
Later that night around 7:10pm, police observed a Ford Ranger leaving the backyard of a private residence in Anzac Avenue, Newtown. The vehicle left the property without lights on and headed in a southerly direction on West Street at speed.
The vehicle appeared to have been painted bright orange. Police reported that the paint job was of poor quality and that the vehicle otherwise matched the description of the vehicle witnessed at previous offences.
Vehicle now painted orange:
Police believe the vehicle to be a stolen 2015 Ford Ranger, registered with plate number 646VRC stolen from a private residence in Neerim Drive, Mooloolaba between February 9 and 10. The trailer plate EN3615 was also stolen and the vehicle was fitted with a large toolbox.
Police would like to speak with a man and woman (both pictured above) who they believe may be able to assist with their investigations.
The man is described as Caucasian in appearance, 25 to 30-years-old, with very short hair.
If you have any knowledge as to the identification of the man or woman, or have observed the poorly painted orange Ford Ranger, please contact police.
