ACT Policing is seeking information from the public after multiple incidents of gas bottles being stolen for ‘Swap’N’Go’ outlets.

Most recently, seven 8.5 kilogram gas bottles were stolen from IGA Palmerston last night (Wednesday 21 August).

About 9.45pm, two men used bolt cutters to access the gas bottle storage cage. CCTV footage of the theft will be analysed by police.

Over the past three months similar incidents in Fraser, Symonston, Oaks Estate, Charnwood, Ngunnawal, Fyshwick and Waramanga have been reported to police. A total of 58 gas bottles have been reported stolen. They are believed to be being sold off individually.

Anyone with information regarding these thefts is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via Information can be provided anonymously.
