Police are looking for a black Holden Colorado Ute with QLD rego 461LFW and a silver Toyota Rukus with QLD personalised rego CHK818.

Information given to police after a spate of thefts has local staff on the look-out for two cars on the far north coast.

The Tweed-Byron Police District are currently investigating a series of stealing offences between the Kingscliff and Pottsville areas between Friday the 4th and Sunday the 6th January.

Vehicles and homes are not being secured and locked appropriately and a small group of opportunistic criminals are taking every opportunity to steal people’s belongings.

Numerous vehicles and homes were being broken into over the weekend due to valuable items being left visible in cars, and residents not being vigilant and taking all efforts to secure their property.

Tweed Heads and Kingscliff Police are aware of the problem and are using all available resources including working closely with our Queensland Police colleagues to identify these offenders, to make arrests and place them before the courts.

As a result of their investigations they have identified two stolen motor vehicles from QLD that are being used by the offenders to travel from QLD to NSW and the Kingscliff and Pottsville areas to commit offences.

Police are requesting the community to keep a look out for two vehicles –
A black Holden Colorado Ute with QLD rego 461LFW and a silver Toyota Rukus with QLD personalized rego CHK818.

If either of these vehicles are seen please contact police immediately.
