Police have issued a warning to property holders after a rise in rural thefts.

These offences include stolen property, stolen vehicles and fuel being siphoned from both drums and vehicles.

Quad bikes and farm vehicles have also been targeted along with tools.

A Queensland Police Service spokesperson says vehicles were recently taken from an Abington property (pictured below).

“Between 1pm on Monday, August 29 and 4.30pm on Wednesday, August 31, a camping trailer and dual cab ute were stolen from a property on Sims Road,” they say.

“Offenders entered the property via a locked gate and stolen the pictured 1998 silver Toyota Hilux bearing Queensland registration 337SNG.

“The 2017 black Series Sergeant camper trailer bearing Queensland registration 721UFE was also stolen from an open farm shed.”


Police fear more offences are happening but they aren’t being reported.

“Be vigilant about unknown persons in the area and report anything suspicious to police, no matter how minor you think it may be, police want to know,” a spokesperson says.

“Police are currently investigating these offences and are appealing to anyone who may have any information in relation to the reports to contact Policelink.”
