Police request help to locate $10,000 worth of property
MILES police are asking for public assistance to help locate a stolen trailer and other goods worth more than $10,000.
The tandem axle 10' x 6' trailer was stolen on the weekend between June 9 and 10 from the Liberty Fuels construction site on McNulty Street, Miles.
Miles police officer in charge Werner Crous said the trailer is of galvanised steel construction, has 900mm tall weld mesh sides, and an aluminium checkerplate toolbox on the drawbar.
The trailer also contained other property including a rubber track for a digger with cat-tracks and hand tools, including shovels.
Meanwhile the toolbox contained a number of Milwaukee brand power tools.
Sergeant Crous said the stolen property is worth more than $10,000.
"I would like for members of the public to take a bit of care with their property, especially as it seems that there are people going around stealing vehicle and trailers, lately Miles has had a little bit of a spate of construction equipment being stolen, if people can lock up their stuff and make sure they make it hard for the thieves to steal their stuff it will be good,” he said.
Any relevant information can be forwarded to the Miles Police Station on 46271222, or call Crime Stoppers 1800333000.
