A 44-year-old man has been accused of stealing a quantity of meat from a truck parked outside a Gympie butcher as police search for two others involved.

Around 2.34am on Thursday, November 18 an unmarked refrigeration truck parked on Young Street near Smithfield Street, across from the Gympie Meat Hall had it’s doors forced open and contents removed.

It's understood the truck belongs to Biggenden Meatworks.

A trio seen coming from a white Suzuki Vitara with a silver nudge bar and one spotlight on the driver’s side removed a large quantity of meat from the rear of the truck before driving off. 

On Saturday, police executed a search warrant at a Noosa Road property in Gympie where they found and seized a quantity of meat stored there.

A Monkland man was arrested at the location and charged with enter premises and wilful damage.

He appeared in the Gympie Magistrates Court today as investigators appeal for information to identify to others seen removing the meat.

Meat recovered will be donated to the local RSPCA.
