Between 7pm on July 15 and 2am on July 16, unknown offenders attended the industrial complex at Nebo and stole the two vehicles pictured below.
One of these vehicles was fitted with GPS tracking abilities but was removed by offenders and discarded locally.
Other vehicles parked at the offence location that were unsecured were also entered and wallets and cards stolen. Subsequent fraud offences were committed.
At about 1.30am on July 16, a Nissan Navara bearing Queensland registration 089WJK was tracked to the Oxford Sarina Road travelling east.
If anyone travelling that or Marlborough Sarina Road, Nebo around those times and have dash-cam vision is encouraged to contact police quoting the linked police report numbers.
The other vehicle a 2015 Toyota Hilux with Queensland registration 878ZYE remains outstanding.
Investigations are continuing into these matters and anybody with information that could assist police are encouraged to contact Policelink (details below).
What is of concern to Nebo Police is the continued complacency around securing vehicles.
Whilst conducting security audits at the offence location for these vehicles, three vehicles were located unlocked with keys in the center console and currency in the vehicles that appeal to opportunistic thefts.
Police will continue with local patrols of industrial and residential areas checking vehicle security.
Police are reminding vehicle owners, don’t gift your keys to thieves.
Don’t put yourselves in a position where you become a victim of opportunity. Lock your car, take your keys out and secure your valuables inside your house or in your lockers at work.
Change the mindset that it wont happen out here, because it is.
