The Rodeo, missing its bumper and with other front end damage and bearing false Queensland registration plates, was driven from these locations with several drums of fuel atop a stolen trailer.

Two trailers and the fuel were later located by police at Yandina, where a bobcat with a distinctive ‘posi-track’ wheel mechanism was stolen, along with another trailer.

Investigators have now released the below CCTV footage showing the vehicle, and a man wanted for questioning.

Anyone with information is urged to contact police.
