Tweed-Byron police have released CCTV images of a man and woman who they believe were involved in a ‘petrol drive-off’ at Chinderah last Saturday, which followed a spate of similar incidents over recent months.

Officers have released the vision in a bid to identify the couple.

The incident occurred on Saturday 7 September at a service station on the Pacific Highway at Chinderah.

The vehicle is described as a dark-coloured Kia Sportage.

Inspector Gary Cowan from Tweed/Byron Local Area Command said the incident was just one of many to have occurred in the area this year.

‘People committing these offences need to realise they are not simply involving themselves in petty crime but their actions could land them in jail,’ Inspector Cowan said.

‘Police are currently working closely with the petrol stations in the area to target the offence.

‘We are also appealing for anyone with information about those involved to come forward,’ he said.

Call police via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: www1.police.nsw.gov.au.
