Thief targets Warwick auto shop
LEFT his wallet in the car? Waited too long to be served?
Whatever the reason, this man thought it was acceptable to wander out of a Warwick automotive store with a $799 generator he hadn’t paid for.
Now, Warwick Police officer-in-charge Acting Senior Sergeant Shane Reid wants the community’s help to catch the man after his brazen morning theft.
“Old mate was at the counter, waited until the attendants were busy then just walked out (with the generator),” Act Snr Sgt Reid said.
The theft of the Blackridge generator happened about 9am Thursday.
“Police are seeking assistance from the community to identify the person depicted from security footage who may be able to assist with enquiries,” Act Snr Sgt Reid said.
“Anyone with information about the theft or the identity of the person depicted please call us on 4660 4444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.”
