Thieves steal 2000 litres of diesel from roadworks site
THIEVES have stolen 2000L of diesel from a RoadTek roadworks site on the Cunningham Hwy, west of Warwick.
Police were called to the eastern end of the Greymare roadworks site at 7am today.
Warwick police officer Constable Jim Doyle said a lock had been cut from a diesel trailer and the fuel either siphoned or pumped into another vessel.
It is believed the theft occurred between 6pm yesterday and 6am today.
Const. Doyle said it was possible two vehicles or a large truck would have been required to store the large amount of diesel.
He noted the trailer was parked directly beside the highway and called on any passing motorists to contact police if they saw suspicious activity at the roadworks, about 18km from Warwick.
Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
