$30,000 worth of seafood stolen by Christmas grinch

A MAN has allegedly stolen around $30,000 worth of frozen seafood from a Woody Point restaurant and function centre.

Police say around 2am on Wednesday morning, a man forced a lock on an external freezer. 

He allegedly removed around 30 boxes of seafood before fleeing onto Lila Street in what police think may have been a white ute.

The seafood was in distinctive white boxes with a Cleveland Bay Seafood logo on top with a red/orange prawn.

Seafood stolen includes prawns, crabs, Moreton Bay bugs and various types of fish.

Police have released images of a man they say can help them with their inquiries. 

Moreton Criminal Investigation Branch Officer in Charge Detective Senior Sergeant Michael Hogan said the theft of seafood so close to Christmas was particularly callous.

"Not only does this have a financial impact on the restaurant, but it's the time of year where many people like to come and enjoy a Christmas seafood meal - and this theft flies in the face of the spirit of the season."

Police would like to speak with anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious in the area between about 1.50am and 2.10am.
