Car theft Walkerston
A car has been stolen from an address on Pleystowe School Road, Greenmount as its owner was in the process of performing an oil change.
At about 2.40pm on August 14, the victim had the engine of his white 2014 Mazda BT 50 dual cab (registration number ARF 605) running in front of the garage.
The owner has walked into the garage to get some oil for the car, as they were doing so they heard a vehicle drive into the property and stop behind the Mazda.
The owner quickly returned to the Mazda and observed it being reversed out of the driveway towards the road.
Attempts made to chase and stop the Mazda were not successful and it was driven away from the address.
A second vehicle – a white Toyota Prado or Landcruiser was seen to be travelling with the stolen Mazda as it left the area.
Anyone who may have information about the current location of the stolen car or the offence itself is encouraged to contact police as soon as possible.
